Rising PSA no cause for alarm

'“PSA velocity” sounds like a phrase that was coined just to frighten you.

And it probably was.

After all, if your doc says “your PSA numbers have risen a touch, but are still low,” you probably wouldn’t care.

But if he says you’ve got “PSA velocity,” well… now you’re probably ready to panic, right?

It’s only natural–and before you know it, the real velocity here is the speed at which you’re hurtling toward a biopsy and quite possibly surgery, radiation and drugs that could ruin your life… all for a cancer that never was a threat to your health in the first place."

Beware: PSA prostate cancer screening test is a dangerous hoax, warns discoverer of prostate specific antigen

by Paul Fassa

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. By the age of 50, most men have some cancerous prostate cells, although many will never know it unless they are screened, and most will not die from it.

Luckily, it's a slow growing cancer. Although prostate cancer cases increase with age, still, only about 3% of men actually die from it.
