Some men might worry if their PSA is still detectable even at a very low level after surgery, but this does not always mean there is still cancer in the body. Modern PSA blood tests can detect even tiny amounts of PSA, but these amounts might not always be significant, especially if they are not rising over time. It could just mean that you have some cells in the body making PSA, but these aren’t necessarily cancer cells...
