psa and prostatitis

55 year old white male with chronic non-infectious prostatitis last 30 years. Psa has been in the 4-5 range last 20 years. History of two episodes of prostatitis leading to septicemia (e coli) which responded to hospitalization and IV antibiotics. Last episode 4 months ago. Understand that this can elevate psa. Now have psa 19 and free psa 4.6%. Am back on antibiotics and waiting for retest of psa.

How long can a severe infection cause elevated psa???

prostatitis will elevate your psa level . If antibiotics lower it my dr says it not to be worried with . But if it doesnt lower then it could be something more serious . My psa stays about 10 . i have had 3 biopsys no cancer found
