PSA bounce (over 0.1ng/ml) was observed in 25.7% of patients (18 of 70) within 30 month after brachytherapy in our series. Several reports demonstrated that PSA bounce was observed in 30-50% of patients, observed within 2 years after brachytherapy and continued following 1 year. PSA bounce should be considered when assessing a patient with a rising PSA level before PSA nadir was achieved 4-5 years after brachytherapy.
