I've had several PSA tests starting in February of this year with results approx.: 9.2, 4.6, 4.4, 3.8, 4.7. My doctor doesn't think the possibility of prostate cancer is worth pursuing (except to continue the PSA testing), but I'm a little uneasy. What do you think?
I'm 64 and a PSA level of 4.7 isn't remarkable, I gather. That 9.2 result back in February is pretty high, and my doctor prescribed 2 weeks of cipro on the theory that I might have a urinary tract infection, or, also, the high level might have been due to inflamation caused by the 6 weeks of radiation therapy I had in Jan/Feb (after surgery for rectal cancer).
