can a abscess/cyst cause a high PSA reading?
Hello and thanks for your question. Please be patient as I respond: I may be in the OR or seeing a patient and will respond ASAP.Absolutely, if it involves the prostate or bladder or urethra. The psa would be completely unreliable in this case. This would cause a large increase in your PSA.
