Does anyone know if Warferin will increase your PSA numbers?

There is no information that shows that warfarin increases a man's PSA numbers. There have been occasional reports of possible anti-cancer properties of warfarin, including reports of anti-prostate cancer effects, but no major studies have actually proven this. You can look at a study published in the June 29, 2000 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine, by Sam Schulman, M.D. where his study shows that people that took warfarin for 6-months had a strikingly lower cancer rate compared to patients who took only a six-week course.

The following activities will increase your PSA numbers: having a Digital Rectal Examination before drawing your blood; having an ejaculation 48 hours before drawing your blood; cycling including an exercise bike or motorcycling within a week before drawing your blood; and alcohol or coffee within 48 hours before drawing your blood. Hope this helps you.

Warfarin does not do anything to your psa. If yours is elevated you need to see a urologist asap.
