No Bose. If it rose from 0.11 to 12 or 120 you should worry.

Dear LynEyre and Heenan,

Thanks for your reply but Lyneyre psa can fluctuates . can you tell me  in this psa level 0.11 to 0.12cancer can be controlled or not in zero level it means that psa is well controlled or it means that cancer cells is active now.

Regards,

Bose

A change of the size you posted could be within the laboratory's range of acceptability, or caused by any number of things in the body. It is an insignificant change. As Lyn suggested, a large - or very large - change matters. A change of 0.1 is NOT significant. It just isn't. It tells you nothing at all.

I don't really get it, Bose. You are an intelligent man and your worries about your dad are disproportionate to the situation. He is being treated, his PSA is low and stable. After all this time, you should perhaps be starting to worry less about the same things over and over again.
