  1. Thanks, Yes I have followed very much followed that route 1. Ultrasound 1 year ago in annual checkup (that's what triggered the attention) mildly enlarged prostrate about 32.2 Ml PSA 6.6 2. Free PSA/PSA (in Spain about 2 months after the above) 6.392 free psa 0.314 Ratio 0.05- not good I believe (my doctor here says they do not do free PSA otherwise I would have rechecked it). 3. Quarterly PSA over 1 year (in Thailand) after this annual check up - first -5.65/5.06/6.62/6.4 - latest (all in same hospital as annual checkup). Next annual checkup in 1 month! (so that will give prostrate volume change if any). Thanks again
  2. Sensitivity and selectivity interesting and many articles say that as you age PSA becomes higher. "Even without any prostate problems, your PSA level can go up gradually as you age. At age 40, a PSA of 2.5 is the normal limit, says John Milner, MD, a urologist in the Chicago area. "By age 60, the limit is up to 4.5; by age 70, a PSA of 6.5 could be considered normal." Many similar articles on the net. It's not that I'm burying my head in the sand, I'm trying to be realistic because apart from this PSA level I seem pretty healthy - resting BP 117/75 treadmill walking, minimum 4 kilometers at 6Kph, a day. Spending money is easy - spending it wisely is more difficult
  3. "Aggessive" depends on what aggressive means in terms of time. If it's "aggressive" then paying 50K thai Baht to find out isn't worth it becaause most treatments for this would only give a short extra time and the treatment often is worse than the disease. (my PSA has been around 6 for over a year now). And another thing, the ralationship between PSA and prostrate cancer, is it a causal or indicative one) When you gotta go you gotta go. If I were 40 then I might have a different view!
  4. Anyone know if there is any hospital in Thailand with the above capability AND just as important with doctors capable of interpreting the results. Thanks
  5. So many men so many opinions! Is it really necessary to have a Bail Bond insurance? I am going to be driving my girlfriends car - she has basic insurance and I'm pretty sure I can legally drive her car but the problem arises if I have an accident driving it. Does anyone have experience of having an accident with/without bail bond or any opinions about its usefulness?
