How to Reduce the PSA Levels Successfully?

Here we will know about safe and effective ayurvedic treatment methods to reduce the PSA Levels successfully. So, let’s get started by understanding the PSA Levels.

What is PSA?

Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), is a protein that is produced by the healthy, normal, as well as malign or harmful cells of the prostate gland. PSA Tests are conducted to measure the PSA levels in men’s blood.

According to the National Cancer Institute, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) originally approved the PSA test in 1986, to determine the progress of prostate cancer for men who were diagnosed with cancer.

What Causes an Increase in PSA Levels?

Apart from prostate cancer, a few other factors contribute to the Causes of Increased PSA Levels. These include: –

  • Benign Conditions: A series of benign or non-cancerous conditions can also be responsible for an increase in men’s PSA levels.
  • Prostatitis: Inflammation of the Prostate can also lead to increased levels of PSA.
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): An enlargement of the prostate also contributes to the same.
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Old age
  • Bicycle riding
  • Prostate surgery

What are the Symptoms in Increased PSA Levels?

When PSA levels rise in a man’s body, a series of common signs and symptoms occur that may help you take the necessary precautions and steps to get a PSA test done. Symptoms in Increased PSA Levels include: –

  • Problems in urinating
  • Blood in semen or urine.
  • Weak urine flow.

  • Pain in the pelvic area, thighs, lower back, or thigh.
  • Burning sensation while urinating.
  • Increased urge to urinate

An elevated PSA level increases the chances of cancer development. The following levels determine the chances of developing prostate cancer in men:

  • PSA Level below 4: estimates around 15% chance of prostate cancer.
  • The Border Line Range (Between 4 to 10): 25% chance of prostate cancer.
  • PSA Level above 10: more than 50% chance of developing cancer.

How to Reduce the PSA Levels Naturally?
