    Yes, surgery would solve both the PSA and BPH issue, but from other threads I understood that the purpose of the genomics test plus MRI and biopsy was because Murphy's husband was adamant about...

    OK, that's what I suspected ;). A score of 3 is the gray area -- just as likely to be or not be cancer. But you already know G6 was found on prior biopsy, so I would take this as good MRI news: no...

    Hi David -- Even if you confirm that your current PSA is 0.1, and assuming the previous was correct at <0.1, that would still give you almost no insight into what your PSA is doing. Assuming for the...
