How Best to Interpret and React to PSA Results

July 29, 2019

That PSA number going up on the lab report does not mean that you are going to die. Please remember that. The problem is that you think it does, and that’s why you panic a bit or more when PSA rises by even a tenth of a point.

Let’s agree on this:

  • PSA going up does not often mean you will die from prostate cancer;
  • Excess PSA worry will increase stress chemicals in your body, and that may cause more harm than rising PSA;
  • Yes, if your PSA is rising, it may mean something is up in your prostate or some activity after prostate cancer treatment is brewing. A drop in that number may mean a something good thing is happening. “May” is the operative word here.

There’s still much we don’t know about how the PSA protein works or why and when it does what it does, but with certainty, after seeing thousands of patients with prostate issues, I can tell you that a PSA rise is very often not a death sentence. Your worry and anxiety over it might be. Let that sink in.

As always, please follow the XY Wellness Diet, adhere to a nutraceutical regimen that is tuned to your needs, sleep well, and exercise often, keep in touch with your qualified health care specialist, and let everything else take care of itself. If you do this, you will be fine.

Make it a Great Day,
