Patient : I am a 48 year old male who has been diagnosed with Prostatitis. My PSA level had jumped from 1.7 to 2.6 in about 15 months. However, after 4 weeks of the antiobiotic, my PSA level dropped back down to 2.1 and the doctor order a PSA free test. That number was 11 %. He reccommends biopsy, but also tells me that there is still some infection because white blood cell count level was between 20-30 even after taking 4 weeks of antibiotic. Can prostatitis casue the PSA free level to be low?
