Conclusion

A low PSA of ≤0.1 ng/mL in otherwise asymptomatic men is associated with significantly higher rates of hypogonadism and low IGF-1 compared to control subjects. Men with low PSA should undergo full hormonal evaluation according to the established clinical protocols to exclude other potential associated pituitary dysfunctions.
