Don't worry about rising PSA levels
It's the most useless test in medicine, and your doctor knows it.
He knows it... but he's almost certainly using it every single day -- and maybe he's used it to make life-changing decisions about YOUR health.
It's the PSA test, proven time and again to be pointless, needless, and worthless -- and now, another study confirms that even a sudden rise in PSA means absolutely zippo.
Researchers from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center looked at data on 5,519 men who participated in an earlier prostate cancer study -- all of whom were unlucky enough to win a biopsy at the end no matter what their PSA tests revealed.
But their pain is your gain -- because now you have more ammo to use against your doc if he tries to poke his way into your prostate: The researchers say the men who had rising PSA levels didn't have a greater cancer risk.
They were only ever-so-slightly more likely to even have prostate cancer -- but none of them had the rare and aggressive tumors that can cause real problems, according to the study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
You want to know what's really insane about this? Rising PSA levels -- which I've been telling you for years mean nothing at all -- are even more likely to trigger a biopsy than a high PSA level.
Docs know what I've been telling you. They read the same studies. They just don't care -- because it's far more profitable to hack into prostates, even if the biopsy alone can do more damage than the tumor ever will.
Poking these things can turn a harmless tumor into a cancer machine -- and actually SPREAD the disease the doc claims he's only trying to detect.
And the treatments that often follow those biopsies -- up to and including castration -- can ruin whatever's left of your life afterwards, leaving you dribbling into diapers and unable to perform in the bedroom.
Bottom line here -- don't worry about "high" PSA levels or "rising" PSA levels.
Worry about finding a doc who doesn't use PSA tests at all.
