Difference between "PSA" versus "Screening PSA" ?
Not long ago my PSA was 3 ng/ml as reported by LabCorp. Then, on July 15, 2023 my Consultation Notes from a Radiation Oncologist mentioned that my "Screening PSA" was 7.6 ng/ml. However, on this same report it indicated a PSA of 3 ng/ml. So, what's going on here? Is there some sort of secret algorithm being used? Historically, my PSA over the last 10 yrs has been rising slowly up to 3 ng/ml.
