Q: What Does PSA 0.6 Mean?

I have a PSA count of 0.6 , I am a man 73 years old, but only dribble when urinating. A: A man of age over 40 should be checked every year to ensure there is problem, However, PSA of 0.6 has a very low risk of prostate cancer (about 10%). In the other hand, Post Micturition Dribble (PMD) can be caused by a weakness of the muscles (surround the urethra) of the pelvic floor.

Q: Elevated PSA from 4 to 9 After Antibiotics, what does this mean?

Age 60+ PSA at 4 and now at 9 after short course of antibiotic for UTI. No urinary symptoms. Is this unusual?

A: Doctors usually treat the elevated PSA level with antibiotics, they say it’s prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), thus you can avoid biopsy, but if PSA levels still going up, it’s the time to re-diagnose and define the reasons.
