How high does the blood test PSA for prostate, would it be cancer?`?My dad is 4.something. He’s wondering the ‘nromal’ number, if there are any?

[display_name id=”1″]I have bi-lateral (both sides) prostate cancer and my PSA score was only 6 whereas my brother’s cancer measured almost double the PSA and his only affected one side. A 4 isn’t really cause for concern. There is a big “but” though. The PSA should only serve as an indicator that more examination is needed. A rectal exam (digital), possibly ultra-sound and a biopsy are needed to rule in/out cancer. I don’t believe there is a “normal” number but the “ideal” number would be “<.1” which translates to “no sign of cancer” or “PSA unmeasurable”, and is a figure I look forward to seeing every time my semi-annual PSA results come back.

Even if your dad’s prostate turns out to show cancer (God forbid), unless that cancer shows signs of being of an aggressive type, he will have plenty of time to weigh his options since prostate cancer is normally a very slow growing type of cancer and there are many options for treating it.…
