Free/total PSA ratio

The free/total PSA ratio (%fPSA) is an additional new parameter used in assessing PSA levels. Some authors 1,2 recommend that men with PSA levels of 4.1 to 10 ng/mL who are not suspected of having prostate cancer by whatever means should undergo %fPSA measurement and then be carefully monitored at short intervals over the long term if they have lower %fPSA levels.

It should be taken into account that %fPSA will be elevated in men on dialysis treatment 3.
