We are so use to knowing the PSA of men here, that either have been dx with PC, or soon will. A few lucky ones escape our grips, thank goodness.
I have been curious what PSA is like for men that don't have PC, let's say over 40 years old. Here are 3 examples I know first hand. If you know any friends or relativies PSA that don't have PC, please add along:
One of my brother-in-laws in FL, age 54, been getting PSA/DRE for a while, most recent PSA: .8 (yep, point eight)
(Use to be heavy drinker most of his life, never smoked, eats healthy, tall and lean, severe heart issues though)
A good biz friend of mine, age 64, after much prodding from me the past 2 years, has had 2 identical PSA scores: 2.8
(In his case, very obese, terrible eating habits - long term single, and his father and 2 uncles on his father's
side died of PC, all in their early 60's)(As a Mormon, he has never drank or smoked)
My youngest brother, lives local, age 46, latest PSA, 1.8.
(He never drinks or smokes, but obese, not great eating habits)
For a reference point, my first one, at age 50 when I started them, was already 2.5 or 2.8, can't remember now.
