Sudden rise in PSA score
I am in a bit of a panic. I had my prostate removed in 2015. Since then, here is a history of my PSA's scores, with month and year:
I don't have the records anymore from 2015 and 2016, but I know they were "undetectable"
9/2017 < .1
4/2018 < .1
10/2018 < .1
4/2019 < .1
10/2019 < .1
11/2020 < .1
8/2021 undetectable (looks like a different lab)
8/2022 0.04 (different doctor and different lab
1/ 2023 0.04
I have now changed to a new primary care physician, and I had a psa test a couple of weeks ago (I assume it is a different lab), and it says my PSA is 1.2. This is 30 times what it was 8 months ago. I am hoping this is a mistake. Is it possible that it would jump so suddenly and by this much in only 8 months?
