Abstract

Serum PSA determinations are an important part of the urologic evaluation for prostate cancer. DRE, TRUS, cystoscopy, and ejaculation have minimal effects on serum PSA levels. Prostatic massage, needle biopsy, TURP, and prostatitis can cause significant elevations of serum PSA (Table 1). These factors should be kept in mind for interpretation of PSA values.
