    I've now had 3 biopsies and they are all negative. Two MRI's that show a suspicious lesion that have been targeted as well during those biopsies. As others have said, MRI's don't diagnose cancer...

    Three different urologists have seen me over the years. The first one that did the original biopsy, one of his associates that does all of the MRI guided biopsies, and now the third from Ohio State....

    Chiguy, your case is sort of similar to mine except that you have found some G6 in your biopsies. I too had thought about Finasteride but I don't have any symptoms of BPH although with my 57gram...

    Same thing happened with my MRI as Skipper's in that the most recent URO said there was no way I had a PI_RADS 5 lesion although he didn't say it was no score at all.

    Biopsies aren't all that bad, I've had 3. They will target the areas of the prostate that light up the PIRAD score and may or may not find anything there.

    In my case, I've never experienced any of the typical signs of BPH. No ED issues, no stopping/starting issues, no problems emptying my bladder. I do take a diuretic for blood pressure and sometimes...

    Saturation biopsy isn't all that bad, the worst part in my case was the catheter being in for 3 days following. I don't think they always insert a catheter, but in my case, there was a suspicious...

    I'm going to assume that suggestion wasn't a serious one. I'm with Micheal and there isn't a doctor in the USA that would take it out without confirmation of cancer and I'm sure no insurance would...

    I also meant to say that my prostate is now about 56.6g in size which is part of the reason for so many samples.

    Anyone else here had any similar results or does anyone have any suggestions other...

    I've seen in total 3 URO's over the last 7 years and they have all said the same thing when I ask why I have the high PSA and no cancer is found. They have all said they have seen a case like mine...

    He said it amounted to only about 1-2% removal, so I guess I would have needed at least 50 more sessions to get it all. :)

    Just got the results of my saturation biopsy and they are all negative. I had another MRI early this year and the URO wanted to do another fusion biopsy. I was afraid that I'd end up with the exact...

    I had the test run on my samples last year and no indications of cancer were found. Still don't know what is going on with my prostate but we are planning on another MRI soon.

    How did you get into this trial Chiguy? When I went to the link it says they are not recruiting yet. I'm less than 2 hours from Indianapolis so it'd be an easy drive for me too. I don't know if...

    I read somewhere once that anterior lesions do cause a higher PSA but I can't find it now. Do you have a link to a study or something? My PSA is also high and there was a lesion on the MRI in the...

    This is me in a nutshell except I'm not of African decent. I also had the ConfirMDx test which showed no signs of cancer. Had another PSA a month ago and I'm still hovering around 12. Going to...

    I spoke to my urologist about this about six weeks ago. He didn't recommend it at that time saying it could mask what was going on. He's still as confused as I am about what is going on with my...

    Thanks, I'm just looking for more direction. I've now had two negative biopsies including one MRI guided biopsy. Anything that can point me in the right direction helps.
