prostatitis and utricle cyst means cancer or biopsy?

I just went to uro and did TRUS, uroflowmetry, seminal fluid check, and took 1 week of Cravit ... after 3 days I felt better. The TRUS found that I have a utricle cyst 8x9mm...uroflowmetry is normal, and I had streptococcus on my semen. He gave me another week of Cravit...and told me nothing to worry about. Is he correct?  he also told me to wait for my PSA reading this year. does the utricle cyst are precancerous?  he also said that it's quite common. Pls advice


 thanks in advance...

Hi there!

Yes, I would agree with the suggested management plan. The chances of development of cancer in a utricle cyst are low (around 3%). Infections/ inflammations of the prostate are often associated with increased PSA levels and hence a test is advisable only after the infection/ inflammation has settled down.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
