Why Does My PSA Remain High After Negative Biopsy
I did the four weeks of antibiotics in case of infection. PSA did not come down. I did the biopsy, negative. Yet my PSA stays around 4.5 to 5 for about a year now. Free PSA 15%. Doc says that is very high for a man in his 50's but doc says my prostate feels normal, not enlanged and actually was small..and that most men with raised PSA don't have cancer. I don't know if he said that to make me feel better or if it is true. It went up from 2.6 to the present levels in a year. I have read where some men have had numerous negative biopsies and finally found cancer. Others have numerous biopsies with high PSA and no cancer. Can there be a chronic infection that antibiotics won't get rid of? If it were an infection, would my prostate be enlarged? If there isn't cancer, infection or enlargement...what else can cause the PSA to be constantly high?
