What Does Your PSA Score, PSA Level,
PSA Reading or PSA Test Mean?
By itself, a PSA reading does not mean very much. PSA is a very rough and ready indicator but it is the best that is currently available. A PSA reading certainly does not  
predict prostate cancer, but in conjunction with other indicators, it may suggest that there is a risk of prostate cancer which should be investigated.
In most cases when doctors detect a high PSA, they will recommend a prostate biopsy. I do not recommend a prostate biopsy which in any case produces a negative  
result in 75% of cases. That means that the pain and expense of a prostate biopsy is turns out to be unjustified in three cases out of four.
But I am actually more concerned when a prostate biopsy does indicate that a prostate cancer is present. It is important to maintain a balanced perspective because  
80% of prostate cancers are not life-threatening. The problems with having a biopsy that detects prostate cancer are twofold.
If you have a high PSA reading you need to return your prostate back to good health. You need to make important changes to your diet. You also need to have  
regular exercise. A third and equally important part of my recommendation is to take appropriate natural supplements.

I provide a roadmap in my guide "All about the Prostate". Most men who follow my roadmap will see their PSA levels come down. It will return their prostate to good  

If you have a high reading and are wondering what to do next, please send me a question detailing your personal circumstances and I will advise you of your options.
Dear Ben,
Love your letters they have helped so much. Thank you over and over you have really helped me. (1) I don't get nervous about my prostate, I go to the Dr. and they try and scare me in thinking something is really wrong.(2) When I read your guide and follow what you say I feel great,(3) I don't get up at night maybe 1 time every three nights or so. You have really helped me in so many ways.(4) I can go out and not worry about running to the bathroom all the time.(5) I really think my prostate is shrinking. I even have more energy. Thank you.

There is considerable evidence that the prostate biopsy  
procedure, through a process called needle tracking, is likely  
to spread the prostate Cancer to other locations within the  
prostate. This has the potential of making the prostate Cancer  
more aggressive and perhaps potentially life-threatening.
If the prostate Cancer becomes more aggressive, it also makes the necessity for invasive procedures to remove or destroy the prostate more credible.

And that is the second reason I do not like to see prostate biopsies in the majority of cases. It tends to lead patients down the path of invasive and damaging procedures. For a man to lose his prostate is not like losing a tooth. The prostate is a very important organ and the damaging consequences of losing it tend to significantly reduce the quality-of-life in most patients that have these procedures.
Instead of having statistical predictions it is more productive to make the changes to your diet and lifestyle and take the natural supplements that will bring down your PSA and in any event reduce the chances that you will have an active let alone life-threatening prostate cancer

I am not advocating that one should not have a PSA regularly monitored. On the contrary, I think it is a good early warning indicator. Also, an elevated PSA reading should not be ignored. It is a good indicator, certainly the best we have, and you should take precautionary action.
As a backstop, where despite all your best efforts to bring down your PSA by natural means, it continues to rise, I recommend my advanced prostate cancer risk assessment. That is a series of medical tests incorporating a very sophisticated scan by a Prof of urology.

In most cases, not only will the aggregated data from those tests reveal whether you do have prostate cancer, it will also give you a qualitative prediction as to whether the prostate Cancer is potentially life-threatening or not.
If my explanation about PSA has been helpful to you but does not answer your specific concerns, please avail yourself of my free prostate health information service to ask me a question about your particular situation.
There have been any number of research studies that have shown repeatedly  
that none of these invasive procedures, either on their own or in conjunction  
with other invasive procedures, have extended the life expectancy of the  
subjects of those invasive procedures. In other words, whether you have  
conventional medical treatment for prostate cancer or not, your life  
expectancy will remain much the same.

There are many actually possible causes of the rise in the PSA reading. The  
most common of these reasons is an enlarged, inflamed, or infected prostate.  
That is one of the reasons a high PSA score does not necessarily indicate  
prostate cancer. And that is one of the reasons why so many prostate  
biopsies are unjustified.
Unfortunately there is no failsafe test or methods at this time that can  
differentiate between a high PSA level caused by inflammation of the prostate or  
infection of the prostate or prostate cancer. At best doctors use a statistical  
model, which seeks to predict your chances of having prostate cancer. But that  
is purely a statistical construct and does not actually predict your specific and  
personal situation at all.

Let me explain what I mean by that. If a Dr tells you that his statistical tables  
indicate that at your PSA level you have a 30% chance of having prostate  
cancer, that does not tell you whether you are in the 30% or in the 70% of men  
who do not have prostate cancer at that level of PSA.
6/7 cases of prostate cancer will never become life-threatening and therefore do not need invasive treatments which
(despite all the claims by Doctors) have been shown by many studies not to increase life expectancy.
At the same time, these invasive procedures that often follow after a positive biopsy have the potential to cause significant damage to your quality-of-life.
