Re: High PSA
Jul 21, 2010
[QUOTE=jnordbe;4290257]I'm new to this blog thing but here it goes. My PSA no. has steadliy risen the past few years. A year ago it was a 5. and I had a biopsy done and it showed no cancer. Last month I had a PSA reading of 8. The doctor put me on ciprofloxacin for infection. Is it possible that there is infectio in the prostate and not cancer?

It is possible if your high PSA is caused by inflammation or infection. Usually the urologist will order another PSA test after 3 weeks of Cipro. My PSA did not come down. I am looking at repeat biopsy (24 cores).I will be under anesthesia during the procedure. Good luck to you and me.
