It looks to me like the highest PCA3 score you can get is 124 from the graph. I just got a 111 and a 2.29 PSA with a normal DRE. I just 20 needle prostate biopsy, no results until next week. I don't understand why my PCA3 score is so high with the absence of other signs of prostate cancer, and the statistics indicate I will have a 75% probability that this biopsy will be positive because of the 111 PCA3 score. Is this correct?
I have the same problem yesterday i received the results for my pca3 i have 111 , and my pca is 11.5 im 28 years old and im quite scared , im getting a biopsy on july 6 , i read that the gleason score is related to the pca level , please contact me , ***@****
