The PSA is a protein produced by the prostate gland and normal range is within 0-4 ng/mL. For men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, the range of PSA may run between 4-8 ng/mL. Men with prostate cancer may have more than 10ng/mL level of PSA. Men should be tested for PSA when there is a noticeable increase in voiding frequency. Troubles in starting and stopping urine flow, blood in urine and back pain when urinating are other symptoms indicative for a PSA test.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia can be a progressive disease, especially if left untreated. Incomplete voiding results in stasis of bacteria in the bladder residue and an increased risk of urinary tract infection. High Island Health provides best treatment for Bph at Houston .
