I had blood taken on Sunday (4 days ago). The
Nothing to worry .If curious take antibiotic and repeat test after 15 days
Thanks for query .
Based on the facts and reports that you have uploaded it is very common to have marginal high levels of PSA at the age of 66 years due to Enlarged Prostate and infection .
If you are too curious about it take antibiotics like Nitrofurantoi and Bactrim D.S twice daily for ten days and repeat PSA test after 2 weeks which I am sure it should certainly come to be around 4 .
Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
With near normal PSA there is no possibility of Prostate Cancer at all.
Thanks for follow up .
The cancer of prostate is suspected to be in following situations .
1)There is a significant high level of PSA
2)Serial PSA values done at regular interval of every month for 3-4 months show rising trend in PSA levels
3) Dr who has done Digital Rectal examination (DRE) on palpation feels hard nodule on the surface of Prostate.
The pain in back above hip joint could be due to local orthopedic problem which can be rectified by examination and relevant test by a qualified Orthopedic surgeon .
Thanks and Regards.
