Hello folks.

I'm a 45 year old male. I had a routine urinalysis and my psa was 0.64. According to the lab report the normal range is 0.00 - 4.00.

That seems pretty low. Is that normal? Thanks!

Hi AN239590, - We need to first know which PSA result has the correct decimal point. I am going to ASSUME that it is the 0.64 and that is about the desired average for a 45 year old man. The .064 that appears in the Subject line is probably a typo, but correct me if my assumption is wrong.

A Study by Dr. Catalona at Northwestern University Medical Center showed the following "median" (50% above & 50% below) levels found for men in the following age groups:


40's = 0.7 ng/ml
50's = 0.9
60's = 1.3
70's = 1.7

You seem to be very close to the median and that should be encouraging. Statistical hances are high, that you probably have a healthy Prostate, as yet relatively unaffected by BPH, which is the natural growth of the Prostate that occurs in nearly all men, in varying degrees, after the age of 40 y/o.

Unless you have some symptoms, you test pretty well at the present time. - John@newPCa.org (aka) az4peaks

Thanks John! You were right. The subject line was definitely a typo and the tests were 0.64
