My dad, who has prostate cancer, was also recently dx with Lyme disease, for which he's being treated with antibiotics and responding well. Perhaps coincidentally, his most recent PSA was off the charts (I think he said it was 150).
Neither of us can find anything with Google that's much help. Dad says that infections can have an impact on PSA readings, so he suspects that's what's up.
Anybody else know anything about this?
