I didn’t need radiation because my prostate was HUGE but it was not prostate cancer, yet I refused to go through surgery or those kind of treatments because of the side effects and that’s why the urologist prescribed me a supplement that is 100% natural, it´s name is alpharise, it has no side effects and worked really good on me, I no longer need to wake up to pee in the nights.
I have been unable to find the expected std deviation of the PSA test at levels close to 0.10. It seems like a very simple analysis: divide a blood sample into 30 or so aliquots, run the tests, then do the math.
Article states “……..following surgery was 9% among men given salvage radiation for PSA levels ranging from 0.01 to 0.2 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL).” Is the PSA level 0.01 correct or should it be 0.1? I was under the impression PSA was considered undetectable in a range of 0.0 – 0.07.
