    PSA Rising

    When the PSA is rising, how fast is a number that should get you concerned?

      Todd, this is something that _you_ must discuss with _your_ doc. One size does not fit all.

      Don't be hesitant, don't be pushed aside. If you do not understand an answer, say, "I don't understand that answer. What does it mean for me and for my treatment?" Don't let your doc, or nurse practitioner, or ..., leave until _you_ are satisfied.

      It's not a specific number. It is how fast it double
      s then triples. Go over your history of numbers and go from there.
