Re: rapid jump in psa and low free psa
Prostatitis can settle in and become a chronic infection that is, in some cases, incurable. It will elevate your PSA as long as you have active infection. Free PSA less than 10% is troubling. I can see why you'd hesitate to have a biopsy, given your history of e coli infection. All you can do is take it one step at a time. Good luck!
