High Psa for 30 Year Old
My 30 year old husband (we've only been married for 9 months) went in for an annual physical after having pain in his lower back for about 3 years.' This pain only happens around 3-4:00am in the morning after he has been laying down to sleep for some time. He must sit up to relieve the pain. After the physical, the doctor called us in to let us know his prostate chemical level, PSA was extremely high for his age, an 8, when it should be below a 2. The doctor referred us to a urologist who said this level was extremely uncommon in someone his age. He said it was probably a mistake. He gave my husband antibiotics for two weeks and retested him after a month. We received the results last week and his PSA was now 8.5. The first thing the doctor said was "I cannot explain this". He said in the 10 years of practice he has only seen this once in someone his age (biopsy was negative for that individual). He scheduled my husband for a biopsy of the prostate in 2 weeks from now. I am really scared it might be cancer. I have read earth clinic for sometime and am convinced that doctors do not have ALL the answers. I need to do something to help him. We are strong believers in God and try to have a positive attitude, but our human nature sometimes makes us think the worst. I read your Q&A that D sent in 2006 regarding her father's prostate cancer and elevated PSA levels. She talked about how your lemon-bicarbonate remedy and a little potassium bicarbonate helped lower his PSA? I could not find the actual remedy after reading several pages. I also read on earth clinic that garlic helped one man with prostate cancer. Again, we are not sure what it is, but I need to do something. I would appreciate if you would suggest something or let me know what remedy you gave D for her father.& I have also read about the benefits of ACV and hydrogen peroxide inhalation (one man on the site said it cured his prostate cancer). I am confused-PLEASE help. Again, my husband and I are just starting our lives together. During our 9 years of courtship we always talked about getting married and having several children. This time of waiting for results has been truly difficult and just thinking about the possibility of not having him around to fulfill our dreams is extremely hard.
Here is a little history on him:
Had abscess in liver at 25
Appendix removed at 26
Taken to emergency for fever and chills. Emergency doc said his prostate was a little enlarged and that was probably where the infection was at. Gave antibiotics and fever did not return-3 years ago
Lower back started hurting around this time (Went to follow-up with new doctor he had and the doctor laughed at him and said they violated him in the emergency by checking his prostate and that he was too young for prostate issues). Husband did not pursue the issue of this back hurting until his annual physical this last December 2007.
His father who is around 80 has had issues with enlarged prostate for several years.
Husband loves bread, he used to eat what I think is an excessive amount of sweat bread a day. Stopped in last 40 days. He drinks soda and other junk food-like most of us in the US, but has always been very slim. He seems a little mature for his age. Has like small fungal brown itchy patches on his back and neck. They go away an reappear with the application of cream.
Ted, Again, I know this is a lot of information, but I would really appreciate some guidance or help. Thank you in advance for considering our issues. I know God is pointing me in the right direction by asking you for guidance and assistance. Thank you
