   Will drinking coffee prior to having a psa test alter the results. I have never heard of this and was told nothing about it. My psa has been rising over the last 9 months. It is a marginal increase that makes me wonder if my coffee intake which has also been increasing may be the cause
september 05 Diagnosed with sciatica as the cause of the extreme pain I was in
November 05 Chest xray for pnuemonia revealed a pulminary nodule. Advised not to worry
June 06 After urinating blood for 2 months advised to have a psa test. 3216. chest xray revealed multiple lesions in each lung. Bone scan revealed pelvic bone affected. Biopsy 3-4=7 gleason scale.
Placed on lupron and casodex. Within a year psa had fallen to under 3.0
Feb 08 psa-.09 may 08 psa-.25 july-.44 sept.-.80

I can't walk out of the house without my three cups of coffee skull
But as Swimom mentioned, it shouldn't be an issue with getting a PSA test.
I had my three cups prior to my last test and all was well.

There are some things that can cause the psa to rise slightly for a short period of time. Ejaculation and bike riding are a couple.  Never heard coffee causing a psa rise.


Age:  44
We have a family history of PCa.  My Dad and uncle died from it at 65 and 53. My PSA velocity increased in the last 2 years and I had to talk my GP into refering me to a urologist.
Biopsy results:  5 of 11 cores positive, all 30%. Gleason 6. T1c. PSA 2.53  Date of biopsy 15MAY08.
Open RRP at Johns Hopkins with Dr. Partin on 09JUL08.
Pathology report:  Gleason 6, pT2, neg. margins, 0 lymph node and seminal vessical, organ confined, I lost 1 nerve bundle and 22 lymph nodes.
As of today, about a month after surgery, I feel at about 80%. Urinary control seems to be improving. Little Elvis has taken a nap and has not awakened yet. I hope when he wakes up he is well rested because he is going to get one heck of a workout.
