What can cause PSA levels to rise?

In addition to prostate cancer, a number of benign (not cancerous) conditions can cause a man's PSA level to rise. The most frequent benign prostate conditions that cause an elevation in PSA level are prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) (enlargement of the prostate).

How do you lower your PSA level?

The best way to avoid this is to maintain good prostate and overall health based on the following guidelines:
  1. Eat more fruits, vegetables and nuts.
  2. Add some pomegranate to your diet.
  3. Exercise more.
  4. Lose weight.
  5. Take aspirin.
  6. Eat more tomatoes.
  7. Reduce or avoid foods that harm the prostate.
  8. Reduce animal protein intake.

What normally increases PSA level?

PSA-raising factors. Besides cancer, other conditions that can raise PSA levels include an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH) and an inflamed or infected prostate (prostatitis). Also, PSA levels normally increase with age.
