Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you had an ultrasound of your prostate?
No, nothing but the PSA
You should have an ultrasound of prostate.
A low or normal PSA does not necessarily mean that your prostate is not enlarged.
You need to have an ultrasound of your prostate.
I would recommend that you should be referred to a urologist.
Are you following me?
OK, but is the very low PSA an indication that that it's nnot BPH - my original question?
You may still have BPH
Even with a very low PSA
What am I to say to the GP? Insist on a referral to urologist? Effectively disbelieving him? Is there a reference somewhere that could be quoted to base my request on?
request him to refer you
OK, just ask for a second opinion, then?
Request him to refer you to a urologist
I still think it could be BPH.
You should be investigated further.
I will but it would have been nice to say that I had found a contra opinion somewhere. PSA questions aways involve cancer talk!
Fair enough and I now know what must be done. I thought so all along! Thanks and regards Alan
