I am 52, very healthy, with no irregular prostate health symptoms. My PSA was measured at about 7.5-8.0, 9 months ago, and it appears to be in the same range now. I have no enlargement, ultra sound was in normal range. I do cycle a fair amount, and am very sexually active. Should I wait on the biopsy, until PSA increases, or other symptoms begin? My doctors suggest I should do it right away. I am not keen on doing the biopsy.
I read that a realistic approach to this scenario is to assume I have prostate cancer, and simply make life style changes, with diet, supplements, etc. Was this bad advise?
