My primary physician stated to me that one's PSA can rise somewhat after surgery. Some urologist get concerned if one's PSA is over 4. I know of one man that was operated on with no symptoms other than his PSA was 4. I personally believe that some urologist are surgery "happy". They don't get paid if they don't operate (this is the big money). I am not critisizing the profession as a whole but only those urologist that would unnecessarily use scare tactics on a man to operate when it is not necessary.
