I have had a radical prosectomy in 2004 and have been cancer free. However, my last exam showed that the PSA had increased for .03 to .09 in one year. So far there is no evidence to a cacerous growth. Basically the reasons are unknown.
I have been taking rather large doses os Folic Acid in my multivitamin. Prevention magazine ran a study that showed high doses of Folic acid can cause increased prostate cancer growth in men who have not had sugery. Nedless to say, I have stopped taking my Multivitamin untill further notice.
