I'm 53. Had a recent PSA and free PSA. I'm baffled by the free psa ratio, I understand the meaning but unsure about the accuracy. Total psa is 6.05 and free psa 8%. According to the lab report: 68% probability of PC. Anything under 10% is trouble.
I have had a psa every year which has been under 4 averting 3.5. In a 6 month period my PSA rose from 3.69 to 6.05 and with the free psa on the latest. I'm looking to get the 3T MRI, there is only one in the city and I'm not sure insurance will approve.
The research shows that guys with inflammation or bph have a higher ratio of free psa. Anyone know anything about this or had anything similar?
