After my prostatectomy in February 2021 my PSA went undetectable (0.014) after 3 months, the next few tests came back with the same results. In June 2022 my PSA came in at 0.016 and then in August 2022 it is 0.03. I realise there is no need for urgent treatment or even to have much of a discussion about it but can’t help myself!! It is a stressful time every 3 months having these tests and it looks like I am on the rise!! It is still undetectable so I should look at the positive side if things. Next test is scheduled for November 2022. For full disclosure I moved Doctors in July 2022 so the testing facility will have changed between June and August 2022. If it goes up again in November what do I do or should I at least speak with someone now??
PSA Rising!! What does it all mean?? - Prostate Cancer A...
After you changed doctors, was your PSA 0.03 or <0.03? It sounds like no real increase, just a different lab test.
Thanks for responding Tall_Allen, my test result before was 0.015 - (no < or >), this most recent test result, at a different lab was <0.03. You may be right about it being a different lab as I have moved areas so the lab would be different I think but the printout including all details and setting out was exactly the same - just the numbers were different. I am aware there is nothing to do but wait because there is nothing to be done until it reaches 0.2 but nevertheless it has concerned me.
Many thanks for the reassurance!!
