Prostate Volume & PSA Density

As men get older, almost all develop enlargement of the prostate gland. Invariably, PSA rises as a result. When checking PSA the question should not be, “Is it above 2.5 or 4.0?” The question should be, “Is the PSA excessive considering the size of my prostate?”

BPH usually causes abnormal PSA tests in the 4 to 10 range.

Prostate size can be measured with ultrasound or MRI.

A normal PSA is one point for each 10 cc of prostate volume. Abnormal is greater than 1.5 points per 10 cc.*
