PSA levels increase and decrease

Posted 29 Aug 2020 at 13:12

Hi all. 

My father in law has prostate cancer that has spread . He's on Abiraterone, he's had 3 big drops in PSA levels, since starting the treatment. But after a recent results they have risen 0.2 . And I believe now his psa levels are around 3. 

I was wondering if it's normal for the PSA to rise slightly? 

I understand the next tests may show more with it being a little further down the line. 

Thank you.

Hi, I'm sorry prostate cancer brings you here.

It's impossible to comment usefully without knowing his history of diagnosis, PSA values, and treatment dates (including changes to hormone therapy). If you can fill in what you know in your profile, it's very helpful for people answering questions.
