Can the psa go down on the second teat following robotic surgery and can infection cause the first psa to stay above o like a 2.3
Usually when the tumor is completely removed and chemo applied, the PSA goes down.
If the treatment is effective, the PSA can go down. Infection can raise PSA. (quoted) Recent studies have shown that some men with PSA levels below 4.0 ng/mL have prostate cancer and that many men with higher levels do not have prostate cancer . In addition, various factors can cause a man’s PSA level to fluctuate. For example, a man’s PSA level often rises if he has prostatitis or a urinary tract infection. Prostate biopsies and prostate surgery also increase PSA level. Conversely, some drugs—including finasteride and dutasteride, which are used to treat BPH—lower a man’s PSA level. PSA level may also vary somewhat across testing laboratories.
