Not public service announcement by any means, PSA is a test for your prostate and numbers, while controversial, have been an indicator for prostate cancer. In the past the reference range has been 0 to 4. Anything over 4.0 meant you needed to have further testing. This is controversial because depending on whom you talk to, the range for testing needs to be lowered to 2.5 from 4. Additionally, there are those who think that the testing should be stopped altogether because there are too many negative biopsies being done based on elevated psa tests.

So, how does all this end up on my blog. My psa is 4.04….I am going to chronicle my journey wherever it takes me.
