I was looking at these posted dates and they are back in 2008! It doesn't seem like I should bother with adding to this already dead posting. Well today's date is Jan 8, 2013, a year and half ago I had a PSA level of 6.1 and had the biopsy which result in no signs of cancer. Approximately 3 months ago I was feeling very depressed and rundown due to my high stress levels. I contacted my doctor and had him do every kind of bloodwork he could, including my testosterone level. Everything came back well within the normal ranges except my PSA which was now 8.1 a year and a half from the previous test.
My doctor immediately refered me to a specialist who ordered a redo on the PSA test and added an additional test. Two and half weeks from the previous test I redid it. When the result came in I had doubled my PSA numbers in 2.5 weeks to 16.23! Needless to say a biopsy was scheduled as soon as possible. Because my prostrate was enlarged, not really unnormal for a man of my age (56), the doctor wanted to take 3 additional samples from both sides for a grand total of 18 samples.
My doctor called me up New Years Eve at 7 pm to tell me that all my samples were cancer free, and that I will need to take another PSA test in six months.
So I guess I am one of those people that has constant high or rising PSA levels. No explanations as to why or what to do to lower them.
