Basic PSA Question for anxious person.
I have bad anxiety around cancer and had a PSA test today.
The results were 1.94. So on the little diagram on the results, it’s right in the center of normal.
You’d think I’d be happy. I’m kind of okay but fussing with the fact that I do not remember the PSA level I had done a few years ago (a dr bundle it into reg blood work) but thought it was lower and don't think I can remember where to retrieve that. And also know (I think – too much time online) that 1.9 is at the high end of the normal range for my age group (I’m 52) and therefore still at an increased risk relatively speaking.
Should I even be worrying about this? What is your view/interpretation of this? Is this in fact high for my age? And would it matter what my level was say 5 years ago in this instance?
Sorry if these are overly anxiety driven questions.
