What Is Elevated PSA?
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is primarily found in semen but may also be present in the blood. At Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center, we offer a diagnostic blood test to check the levels of your PSA. Elevated PSA test results may indicate the presence of a serious condition in the prostate gland. If a high PSA level is detected, Dr. Shenelle Wilson will further investigate the cause to determine the ideal treatment options to meet your individual needs. If you are concerned your PSA level may be higher than normal, please contact our office in Kennesaw, GA to schedule a private consultation.
What Causes Elevated PSA?
Your PSA level is checked through a simple blood test. Elevated PSA levels may indicate the presence of several prostate-related conditions. Though PSA tests are commonly used to screen for prostate cancer, several factors may cause higher than normal PSA levels, including:
- Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate)
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
- Increased levels of parathyroid hormone
- Surgical procedures around the groin
- Urinary tract infections
- Prostate trauma
- Recent ejaculation
- Prostate cancer
Treatment for an elevated PSA will vary, depending on what may be causing it. If it's prostate cancer, treatment options include robotic simple prostatectomy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and cryotherapy.
Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
She's about the most personable, nicest, caring, down to earth doctor I have ever met in any medical field. I love her to pieces. I want to invite her over for dinner. -Wanda Massey
