I was hoping to get some insight on the results of a FISH test.
a quick background - gross hematuria 3 months ago, MRI negative showed cyst on kidney, Cytoscopy negative but doctored noted slightly enlarged prostate. After scope gave the all clear sign - nothing to worry about
then a month later calls me and tells me a test came back positive.
FISH test has 5/100 on chromosomes 3, 6,7 and 20 (I think - doing that from memory).
5/100 is considered borderline positive. Today I returned to submit another sample for a second test about 1 month from the last one.
1. Is it possible that my numbers go down to a negative range?
2. What is the range of numbers that doctors see as a result of the FISH test? Where is 5/100 in that range?
3. If the second test comes back positive, should I assume the FISH test is putting me in the category of "Anticipatory" for short term development?
Hi there, i am no FISH test expert, except that my hubby just had one done as well. From what we learned there are quite a few false positives. I am sure this is why they are having you repeat the test. Even if the second is borderline, i'm not sure that definitely preficts an "event" down the road. These are questions your doc can answer.
