There are A TON of things that can lead to a high Public Service Announcement count, including infection, recent ejaculation, etc.  That’s why they want to retest.  If the retest is still high, then they might do more looking, but if it’s normal, it’s not a big deal.  Just wait and see, and trust the doctors.  

With Public Service Announcement you really look at trends, not just a high reading here or there.  So hold off on the worry for now, it’s just too early to know anything.

Hope this helps!

sassy411:  Yup, been through it. He was retested and he was fine. TRY not to jump to the worst, though I know it’s hard…

sassy411:  I used to work for a urologist and I can give you good news, we rarely lost a patient to prostate cancer. There are so many treatments out there and so long as it’s caught early, the chances of dying from it are super low.  Hopefully the antibiotic will lower his Public Service Announcement but if not he will have lots of options for treatment from non-invasive to a full prostatectomy.  Most doctors start out with the least invasive option and then go more invasive as necessary based on the Public Service Announcement level and other symptoms.

6 is high but the highest we ever saw on our labs was over 100!  He was referred immediately to an oncologist for treatment.
