The number that we use in regards to PSA, in terms of what's considered normal versus abnormal is 4.0. Anything below 4.0 is considered normal. Anything above 4.0 is considered abnormal.

Now, there's a lot of gray that comes with that. It's not as simple as, you know, above 4.0 and less than 4.0 We also assess rate of change. We also assess risk factors. We also track the PSA over several years.

But in terms of what to watch out for a prostate cancer diagnosis, again, it's really about screening. Once you've been diagnosed, the most important thing is to be well informed, well read.

Speak to your physician. Speak to your surgeon. Speak to your potential radiation doctor. Find out what the best treatment options are and then move forward with what you believe is the best choice for you in terms of outcomes, in terms of cancer control, and in terms of risk for side effects.
