Prostate biopsy results were due from my TURP operation and I had an appointment with the urologist. The most important point of this was to get the results of the histology, that is, the testing of the tissue samples from the TURP. I had also been asked to have a psa test taken a week before the appointment.
A prostate biopsy and transrectal ultrasound was offered a couple of months ago. This was no small matter. I was told I would be under anesthetic and it would be a comprehensive 24 point biopsy. The thinking was that because I had had so many previous biopsies, they wanted to make as sure as they could that there was no lurking cancer.
