Long-term, men with an elevated PSA or fluctuations in their PSA level are advised to seek the counsel of an expert in both prostate cancer and PSA monitoring. "One elevated result is not cause for alarm," Dr. Samadi explains, "It's important to partner with a specialist who has experience in interpreting PSA results year after year. Continuous monitoring and care offers men the greatest opportunity for early diagnosis and swift treatment."Repeatedly high PSA levels can be followed by DREs, courses of antibiotics, and prostate biopsies, depending on the patient's unique circumstances. "I repeatedly witness the life-saving benefits of routine PSA screenings and, in my opinion, the treatment opportunities afforded by the PSA save a significant number of lives each year," said Dr. Samadi. A University of Rochester Medical Center study recently suggested that the PSA test and early detection may prevent as many as 17,000 metastatic prostate cancer cases each year http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cncr.27503/abstract.
