Dan was originally diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007. At that time, he elected to have internal radiation therapy with permanent radiation seed implants. The PSA should be below 1. Prior to the seed implant, it had risen above 7. A year after the implant, the levels were back down below 1 and they remained so for seven years. For some reason, his PSA was not measured after 2014. Fast forward 5 years when a new doctor rotated in, his PSA was measured and it had climbed to 180. A subsequent PET scan revealed hot spots in his lymph nodes. He is under the care of the VA, but because they do not have an oncology department, he may take advantage of Vet Choice. We are now being seen by a doctor at OHC (Oncology Hematology Center) located at Jewish Hospital in Kenwood.
