I've had some urgency problems for a year or two although I believed no worse than for a lot of men my age (68). It seemed like a good idea to ask the surgery to do a PSA while I was having a general health check up. It's come back at 228 - yes really - not 2.28 nor 22.8 but over two hundred. I'm now waiting for an appointment with a urologist. Is a PSA this high really unusual? The websites suggest that the higher the PSA reading, the gloomier the outlook but they all see 7, 8 or 9 as very high and suggest that other causes like recent ejaculation might put it up by a ng or two. Does 228 mean that I'm likely to have cancerous prostate cells all over the place all pumping out PSA? Should I be preparing for an early demise?
