My father has just had a dramatic increase to his psa score, I am wondering what numbers refelct the highest end of the psa scale. Is it 400, 800, 1,000, 5,000?

Hello,

You may want to contact the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center. Cancer Information Specialists are available 24 hours a day and can assist you with questions you may have. They can be reached at 1-800-227-2345.

I wish your father the best on his treatment.

Take care and be well,

My brother's PSA went as high as 1700+...but I don't really know the answer to your question. Dana's referal to the Cancer Society is a good one...they were very helpful answering my many questions in my recent battle with PC. My Doctor was concerned when my PSA jumped by a number greater than 20% in one year.. 2.2 to 5+ was enough to have more testing and a biopsy ordered.
Wishing your father the best.

Hopefully you know that a normal PSA is between 0 and 4. Anything above 4 should be checked out by a urologist.
Please ensure your dad gets to a doctor.
Keep us posted on his progress.
