Could someone please tell me why my husband's PSA is going up even though he had his prostrate removed in fall of 2007? should I be worried? I do not understand what this means, how can PSA go up and there is no prostrate?
I am having the same experiece. Removal of prostrate in Nov 07 and at the first PSA test - 3 months later, a good 0.1 Three months after that - 0.1 Then I waited 7 months and yesterday it came in at 0.4 So now I'm scared. Please keep me posted and I'll do the same for you if I hear of anything we both should know. Age 49 Dad has it too.
