Fairwind has a post about a new test for early detection of PC. Take a look at it. It is just below your post.

Welcome Five-0,

This is a great place to get info and support. Your PSA is high. Did you know that having an organism the night before a PSA test may cause a temp PSA jump? Other possibilities are an infection or enlarged prostate. Has your URO discussed these? Are you on any meds or supplements?

If it is Pca then there is a great deal of info to be had, here and elsewhere on your options.

Best of luck to you!
