Re: High psa level

Back about 8 years ago I did some work analysing some clinical studies that linked prostate size, a man's age and his PSA.

What I discovered was that for a 65 year old man without diagnosed prostate cancer, but with a prostate volume of 50 cc (50 g), the average PSA is 2.5.

Then for every 10 cc of additional prostate size, his PSA would be 0.5 higher. That means for a 65 year old man with a 100 cc prostate (all else being equal) his PSA could be expected to be 5.0 or thereabouts.

There is no way that due to prostate volume alone, could a man's PSA get up to 70. Maybe up to 7 for a huge prostate.
