Q: PSA 7.1 Man 62 with Normal MRI, Do I need Free PSA?

Full Question: I had a PSA test, 7.1 was the result. I had an MRI screening. The result was I had No cancer. The consultant said they would only consider a biopsy if my PSA was over 10.35. This was in the UK. I’m 62.

Answer: you must follow-up every 3 months at most to notice any increasing in PSA results, also I can recommend FREE-PSA-RATIO for you to make the biopsy decision. Have a good day Tony

It’s of good to know that by doing the Free-PSA test we can calculate the Free PSA percentage or ratio. The more Free PSA percentage is likely to be prostate inflammation (e.g. BPH), but lesser than 25% Free PSA is likely to be prostate cancer and must do biopsy by needle or by surgery. A biopsy is taking sample from the prostate tissue and examined that tissue to see if there is normal cells but enlarged in the sizes in BPH or the cells of prostate are abnormally grown up and become cancerous.

bhcg

Q: What Does BHCG less than 5 (<5) means?

Answer:
BHCG is a short code for Beta-sub-unit Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, the hormone responsible for development of the fetus, and its concentrations are used to investigate how many weeks of pregnancy yet?

If the result is less than 5 it means the test is negative and no pregnancy.
If the BHCG result is any number between 5 and 20, it means borderline and should be retested within 2-3 days to ensure it will increase or drop.
If the BHCG level become 20 and above it considered pregnancy and must retest BHCG test after 48-72 hours to make sure the hormone continue to double every other day which means viable healthy pregnancy.
