What YOU can do to help yourself...
NEVER accept when the doctor says "Yes, your PSA is within safe limits," ALWAYS insist that he gives you the actual PSA number. It will probably be around 0.5 to 3.5 depending on your age.
Once you have this number, write it down. Then, compare it to the last PSA you had or wait until your next PSA. If your PSA has doubled within a year, IGNORE your doctor, you need to see a specialist. It might not be cancer, but it might, and your GP does not have the skills to diagnose at that stage.
