    Unfortunately this is not a topic where you will get useful advice. Your situation is going to be unique and not benefit from a layperson's advice. You will need to decide whether you trust your current urologist or you wish to get a second opinion from another doctor. This is a very specific medical concern that requires knowledge of your precise circumstances and it would be irresponsible to incorporate a non-medical opinion. There's no reason you cannot voice your concerns and ask questions of your current urologist, but it sounds like you may not feel you will be heard.

    Thank you for your replay. I'll discuss my case further with my urologist or seek advice from another one.
