Increase of the Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA) is a non-invasive, sensitive and specific markers for prostatic diseases, including prostatic cancer. However, age-related Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), as well as prostatitis, may at the same time alter PSA values. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between ageing and PSA, and whether age-specific upper normal limits of PSA should be considered for elderly patients. We evaluated 569 consecutive subjects aged 60 years or… CONTINUE READING
