Better understand your PSA rate
Normally, PSA is below 4 nanograms per ml (ng/ml). A high level of PSA or its rapid progression of 0.75 ng/ml per year is suspicious of prostate cancer.
High PSA rate: what does it mean?
However, a high PSA level does not automatically mean prostate cancer as it can increase in various prostate disorders (prostate adenoma, prostatitis). Conversely, a normal PSA level does not mean prostate cancer should be excluded. Only a thorough diagnosis can confirm prostate cancer.
