In brief: Yes

Psa is a method for monitoring a pt post treatment.
..After surgery psa should be at an undetectable level....If psa rises after any primary treatment this usually means cancer growth.

In brief: Yes

Psa is much more useful to monitor the response to treatment for prostate cancer than it is for diagnosis of cancer.
