The patient was a 54-year old man who was found to have an elevated PSA (5.6) and referred for a cystoscopy and prostatic biopsy, which was negative. Four years later, he saw his GP who requested a further PSA which was still raised (5.6). Nine months later he saw another GP reporting painless haematuria for three days. An MSU test and urinary cytology were both normal. Three months later the patient saw an MDU GP who requested a PSA which had now risen to 13.8. It appeared that no action was taken on the result.
The patient, a 60-year old woman who had previously been fit and well, consulted a GP MDU member for a second opinion on a lump behind her right knee, which her own GP thought was a Baker's cyst.
