    Default PSA3 test

    I've been reading with interest the PSA3 posts and
    dug around for some URLs. Here are 3 that may or
    may not have been mentioned earlier. The first is
    a pdf file to read online or save to your HD.

    The first two references do not refer to the PCA-3 test. The third is
    interesting and looks like even an improvement over the PCA-3 test.

    I wonder if that's the test I took. The urologist just referred to it as the
    PCA-3 test. It was at the Univ. of Mich., which is where that new test was
    developed. That article is 2/08. It is now 11/09. I wonder if they have
    later information?

    ....

    "PSA velocity = 1/2 ((PSA2-PSA1/time1inyears) +
    (PSA3 PSA2/time2inyears))
    where PSA1 is the first, PSA2 the second and PSA3 the third PSA

    least 3 PSA measurements obtained over 24 months are required for
    optimal accuracy.
    A PSA velocity exceeding 0.75 ng/ml/year is highly predictive..."


    In other words, if you have a high PSA, get tested every 6 months.

    Very confusing is this terminolgy:

    "PCA-3" is a genetic test

    "PSA3" is the third PSA test within 24 months.
