Psa

Does anyone know what the PSA is of the men that die of Prostate cancer at the time of death ? I wonder if they keep any records of this.

I am surprised for your curiosity on dead men’s PSA. I suppose that nobody dies due to a high level of PSA but due to failure of vital systems/organs “infested” with the cancer.
You may read about the PSA results in the stories of survivors who died, in a site dedicated to prostate cancer named YOU ARE NOT ALONE NOW.

Hi Rich,

Knowing your situation, I can appreciate your concern over psa numbers. But as was already stated by Baptista, specific numbers don't dictate a predictable outcome for the length of life for us who are battling prostate canceer.

Especially cancers in the gleason 8-10 category. In my own case, when I was diagnosed with a Gleason 8, my psa was only 4.1 and that was due to the fact the cancer cells were so dissorganized, that they didn't produce that much psa. Lower Gleason scores can actually produce much higher psa even though the cancer is less aggressive.

I wish I could tell you want you would like to hear ( some good news ), but unfortunately I'm not in that position to do that. I do know that your case history and mine are very similar and I dread the day that my cancer could return and like yourself, my only option at that point will be the same kind of treatment that you had ( hormone therapy ) and we both know what the outcome of that can be.

So hang in there Rich, and remember, you are not alone.

Lionel ( keep in touch, please ).
