    The normal range of PSA levels tends to increase as a man ages, with some minor variation between races.

    High PSA test results will generally give your first indication of prostate cancer, alongside a positive Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) – another prostate cancer test.

    PSA aka Prostate Specific Antigen is a protein enzyme produced in the prostate gland and released in to the blood stream.

    After blood work analysis, the resulting PSA score shows how much of the enzyme you’re producing, and your probability of being diagnosed with prostate cancer.

    Normal PSA Ranges by Age

    Age (Years) Asian (ng/mL) African (ng/mL) Caucasian (ng/mL) 40 – 49 0 – 2.0 0 – 2.0 0 – 2.5 50 – 59 0 – 3.0 0 – 4.0 0 – 3.5 60 – 69 0 – 4.0 0 – 4.5 0 – 4.5 70 – 79 0 – 5.0 0 – 5.5 0 – 6.5

    PSA Level Risk Analysis

    • 15%  of men with a PSA level less tha4 ng/ml go on to develop prostate cancer.
    • 31%  of men with PSA levels between 4 – 10 ng/ml have shown to develop prostate cancer.
    • 50% – 65% of men with psa scores over 10 ng/ml develop prostate cancer.

    An important part of the your results is finding both the;

    1. Total amount of PSA in your blood.

    2. Ratio of free vs bound PSA.

    Positive PSA Score Association with Other Conditions

    The amount of PSA in your blood test may increase with other prostate conditions such prostatitis, enlarged prostate (BPH), or within two days after ejaculation.

    Rest assured, even though your results may be high, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have prostate cancer. Just a greater risk of developing it.

    Elevated PSA Range - Prostate Cancer Test

    • Normal PSA Levels: 0 - 4 ng/mL
    • Slightly Elevated PSA4 - 10 ng/mL
    • Moderately Elevated PSA10 - 20 ng/mL
    • Highly Elevated PSA20+ ng/mL

    PSA Levels by Age Chart (Free to Total Ratio)

    The main difference between the PSA scores of prostatitis and an  enlarged prostate , compared to prostate cancer, is the ratio of free vs bound PSA within your test sample.

    • Prostate Cancer will have a higher bound PSA ratio.
    • Aenlarged prostate and prostatitis will have a higher free PSA ratio.
    • If your free PSA results are less than 25%, your risk for developing prostate cancer is between 10% to 20%.
    • If your free PSA results are less than 10%, your risk for developing prostate cancer jumps to around 50%.

    PSA Test Velocity (PSA-V)

    The faster your PSA score increases over time, the greater your chances of developing prostate cancer. It may be a good idea to track your PSA over time, to determine your risk.

    Average PSA Test Doubling Time (PSA-DT)

    Another red flag. This calculation denotes the time it takes your PSA values to double.

    Therefore it may signify the aggressiveness of any prostate abnormalities, whether it's an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, or prostate cancer.

    If your average PSA readings double in less than three years your doctor will most likely order a biopsy, to look in to the problem further and discuss possible prostate cancer treatment options.

    Richardson and Oesterling 6 established “age-specific” reference ranges for serum PSA levels. For men aged 70 to 79, they suggested a normal serum PSA reference range of 0.0–6.5 ng/mL (0.0–6.5 μg/L). more

    What is the normal PSA for a 85 year old man?
    Regarding the results of the present study, the normal PSA level increased by age from 2.5th percentile to 95th percentile. As a result, the normal PSA level increased from 0.00 ng/mL to 4.89 ng/mL in the age group of 60–64 years and 0.0 ng/mL to 33.17 ng/mL in the age group of 85 years and over. more

    What is a normal PSA level for a 67 year old man?
    Decoding a PSA Test The median PSA for this age range is 0.6 to 0.7 ng/ml. For men in their 60s: A PSA score greater than 4.0 ng/ml is considered abnormal. The normal range is between 1.0 and 1.5 ng/ml. An abnormal rise: A PSA score may also be considered abnormal if it rises a certain amount in a single year. more
    What's a normal PSA for a 65 year old man?
    According to the findings of this study, the normal range of PSA (95th percentile) has increased by age and the values for each age group of the study were determined to be as follows: The normal range of PSA is 4.89 ng/mL for the age group of 60–64 years, 4.88 ng/mL for the age group of 65–69 years, 9.01 ng/mL for the more

    What is a normal PSA for a 53 year old man?
    The normal PSA value is usually stated to be less than 4.0. However, because of the fact that benign enlargement of the prostate gland tends to occur as men get older, an age-adjusted scale has been developed: 0-2.5: Normal for a man 40-50 yrs. 2.5-3.5: Normal for a man 50-60 yrs. more
