I advised my son, at age 36, to get a baseline PSA, which he did. His PSA came back at .6 or .7, dont recall which. That was two years ago.
Last year he retested and it came back at .8.
He just retested at age 38, and it is 1.0.
Each time it was a different lab, because the Dr's changed.
I am very concerned. Should he be seeing a urologist? Or wait for the next test, next summer?
He is 38 and single, will be 39 in April. This would be my worst nightmare.
My own PSA was .7 at age 50, and a few years later at 1.3 is when my Dr sent me to a uro and at 1.7 is when a biopsy was recommended, which was negatve. That was at about
Am i overeacting? Cause for concern?
Just to add, i know i should probably know the answer, but its tough to be objective when its this close to home
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
