PSA Reading 40
My friend has a reading of 40 on PSA tests. No cancer was found, and biopsy has been done. Why would his PSA be so high and has been for many years?
There are many reasons a PSA can be elevated. It could be due to a benign enlargement of the prostate, inflammation of the prostate, a urinary tract infection and prostate cancer too.
