Everything I read on the internet was vague or said they didn't "think" so. As you know I live in NE Wisconsin, it's all forest and with that comes those pesky deer ticks. I never thought about this until your thread but a couple of years ago my dad was up here and got a tick that he didn't know about until it became infected. Some time after that he had a high PSA test. They retested it after some time and it came down. Now I wonder if it wasn't because of that tick. It makes sense. I hate ticks, not so much the big ones that you can see but those little ones that carry the lyme virus are so small you may never know you've been bitten. My husbands a deer hunter too and I hate it when he brings them home. I had a patient once that committed suicide because they were always so sick from lyme. I'm glad the treatment is working for your dad!
