I just had an MRI which showed some unusual cells in the prostate. The GE machine was 1.3 and did not have the endorectal coil. Thus I will have another MRi Feb 26 with the endo coil. l Anything I should be prepared for this scan.
Quite concerned as my PSA over 15 years has gone up slowly to 8.3.
Had 2 biopsies and both were negative.
Any info will be appreciated.
thanks, rich P
