Rapidly rising PSA
Dear MD,

My father in law's PSA over 1 year went from 0.6 to 6.5.  He has no symtoms but as we know symptoms do not have to be present for Prostate Cancer.   What are the best diagnostic tools to diagnose prostate cancer( I assume biopsy).  If diagnosed as malignant, how best can we screen to see where if any has it spread to.

Thanks

Biopsy is used to determine the presence of cancer after PSA testing. Digital rectal exam and imaging (MRI & CT) scans are used to determine if the cancer has spread beyond the prostate to the lymph nodes, seminal vesicles, or other organs. A bone scan should be done to rule out bone involvement.

Sincerely,
