Candida Question #9 Can A Man’s PSA Level Become Elevated Due To A Prostate Infection?

It certainly can. There are many reasons why your prostate may become enlarged. An enlargement of the prostate will cause an elevation of PSA, whether it’s through benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, prostate cancer; but in my opinion, also due to a yeast infection or another infection of the prostate.

When the prostate gets enlarged in general, it will cause an elevation of PSA. Now, your urologist or urinary doctor may disagree with me, but on several occasions I have seen a male’s prostate PSA level come down once we treated a yeast infection.

What are some of the reasons why men’s prostates would become affected through Candida? Beer drinking is one of them, excess sugar consumption, having intimate relations with a female with chronic vaginal thrush, and if he’s got a low immune system, and particularly if he’s under high stress. But I have seen many cases of males with prostate issues, pain in the groin, burning on urination, high PSA levels, and many other manifestations of urinary male Candida infection.

So to answer the question, absolutely, a man’s PSA can be elevated due to prostatitis, which can have a cause in yeast infection.
