    Tuesday:PVP, Today:The Stock

    PSA: Not so! My PSA has consistently been between 2.3 and 3.1 for about 10 years. My last reading was 2.5 about 6 months ago. My BPH was an ongoing problem for several years prior to treatment with Greenlight PVP. As far as I know PVP is not yet used to treat Prostate Cancer. Perhaps someday it could in some form, but it's not for me to say; I'm not a med researcher or practioner.
    As for PSA readings, my understanding is that it is but one indicator of prostate cancer, albeit an unreliable one. (False positives as well as false negatives.) A sudden elevation in the PSA reading points to need of examining more thoroughly and perfom a biopsy to be certain what is being dealt with.
