i'm sorry,but most here are missing the issue due to a variety of reasons,principally uneducated web based "knowledge". i had an very elevated PSA over a year ago and a negative digital exam. testing over the next 18 months showed falling levels and continued negative exams. will check a time or two in the next year and follow physical exams,etc. i have a very learned,reasonable and conservative urologist. find one ASAP! last visit he told me that he could gone on for two hours about factors affecting PSA levels: diet,exercise,surgery,meds,trauma,divorce,finances ,stress,etc,etc,etc . it is a fairly crude but usefull screening test with limitations. i am an RN of 39 years experience and not a slave to conventional medicine's opinions. but,prostate cancer diagnosis,treatment and management are fairly well established in america and continue to be upgraded and followed pretty closely. we all know conventional western medicine sucks re: diet,exercise,nutrition,weight loss,etc. sorry,but cancer management,diagnosis and treatment;especially common types like prostate cancer and hyperplasia are well handled by both community and academic based conventional docs.
