What Does Elevated PSA Mean?

miVIP Offers Minimally Invasive Treatment Options for High PSA Levels

PSA stands for prostate specific antigen and is a protein that is created in the prostate gland. It is best that men make sure to keep a close eye on their PSA level since an elevated PSA level can lead to prostate cancer. While a normal antigen level has yet to be determined, if it is higher than three or four you will want to consult a miVIP prostate biopsy specialist.

With the help of a specialist here at miVIP, we can rule out the possibility of cancer and determine what is causing the high PSA levels. Depending on your family and medical history, it is recommended that you have your levels tested if you are older than 45. miVIP is here to help you learn more about high PSA levels and offer you professional treatment should you need it.

Factors that Can Lead to Elevated PSA Levels

High PSA levels and prostate cancer often go hand in hand, but there are other conditions that can lead to elevated levels, including:

  • Diet
  • Age
  • Ethnic background
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Prostate infection
  • Family history
  • Benign prostate enlargement

It is best that you allow a prostate biopsy specialist determine the root cause of high PSA levels in order that they can come up with the most effective treatment option.

Condition Symptoms

You more than likely will not show symptoms of having elevated PSA levels, which is why men need to be so diligent about having their antigen levels regularly checked. By being proactive, prostate cancer can be discovered in its early stages.

Viable Treatment Options

A number of tests and procedures might be performed in order to eliminate the possibility that a more serious condition is causing high PSA levels. Such procedures include:

  • Radical Prostatectomy – a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure designed to accelerate recovery and minimize scarring while maximizing effectiveness. Radical prostatectomies have been found to be more effective than radiation treatments
  • Prostate Biopsies – a prostate biopsy specialist and their support team will take a sample of prostate cells in order to run tests on them to learn more about what is causing the patient’s elevated PSA levels

The results of your treatment will mostly depend on your situation. For that reason, miVIP will go to every necessary length to create a specialized treatment plan that suits your needs and circumstances.
