I'm 70 and just got my PSA results... It came back at 5.2....I feel great and have an active sex life... should I be worried?

    Ask your doctor.

    Why are you asking here about test results? Don't you think you should be discussing the results with your physician?

    You may be 70, but you apparently haven't learned much in life.

    You’re apparently senile enough to think this belongs in “women’s health” so that’s a bit alarming.

    No. That is not considered high in UK, even if it is in America.

    4.0 is normal for under 70; 6.5 is normal for over. But for whatever reason, MDs like to get second tests on me even when my PSA is under 6.5. I'm 83 yo.

    "Aging Affects PSA Levels

    Even without any prostate problems, your PSA level can go up gradually as you age. "At age 40, a PSA of 2.5 is the normal limit," says John Milner, MD, a urologist in the Chicago area. "By age 60, the limit is up to 4.5; by age 70, a PSA of 6.5 could be considered normal.""
