Is There Any Effect from Having a Vasectomy on PSA?
Has any study been done relating PSA scores with men who have had a vasectomy? I will be 69 next month and had a vasectomy about 28 years ago. Normal biopsy last year but recent PSA 5.5. Thanks
There have been many studies and there does not seem to be an association.
