Another Blood Test

I got the results of a recent blood test from my primary physician.  My PSA is still rising, now up to 2.9.  This was the same lab that measured a 2.4 just under a year ago.  Subject to day-to-day variations, this isn’t an alarming increase, but it still isn’t a good sign, either.  Generally, an increase of 0.75 per year is considered a warning sign.  My increase is below that, so hopefully more consistent with prostatitis or BPH.  It also shows my daily regimen of prostate supplements (selenium, saw palmetto, anti-oxidants, etc) is not helping so far.  I plan to consult my local urologist in a few months time.  I’ll probably get another blood test at that point, including free PSA.
