PSA FOR QUIZ

Laboratory

After you obtain the chart, create a chronological history of all your PSA levels. For purposes of the quiz, the highest PSA is entered. The only exception would be an abnormally elevated PSA due to prostate trauma. For example, PSA levels will remain elevated for two months after a needle biopsy.  PSA can also be artificially elevated for 24 hours or so after a digital rectal exam or after sexual activity.
