Latest PSA Result

My latest PSA test measured a 2.6, from the same lab at my urologist’s office that measured 2.8 in March 2010 and a 2.7 about two years ago.  So, basically my PSA has been relatively stable for at least 2 years.  While that doesn’t really prove anything either way, because PSA levels are not a great indicator of prostate cancer, it is a relatively good result for me.  A slow increase in PSA levels can be due to benign issues, while a faster increase may be more indicative of cancer and result in additional testing.  Mine actually decreased slightly, but probably the ups and downs are well within the normal variations of daily and weekly fluctuations in the body and in the accuracy of the testing.
