I'm 63 and I've been tracking my PSA for 10 years on a yearly basis. The range has been anywhere from .7 to 1.9 with no real trend. Today, my bloodwork came back and my PSA was 4.2. I'm freaking out because I've never had any prostate issues and everything works like it is supposed to. My doctor has told me not to worry about it and I'll be tested again in two weeks.
My doc then asked me if I've been riding a bike lately? Yes
Have I been lifting heavy weights? Yes
Did I have sexual relations the night before the PSA test? Probably.
She asked me about my urine flow and I told her that my start/stop is fine and that I will get up once a night to urinate maybe once every 3 or 4 nights. If I don't drink anything after 9PM, the chances are that I'll make it through the night. She was pretty amazed that at 63 I can sleep through the night.
So, any thoughts from anyone with this kind of experience?
