I am receiving disability for prostate cancer. It has been removed and my disability went from 100% to 60%. Now my PSA is .35 and I have submitted a claim. At .35, does the VA consider that a relapse and if so will my rating increase to 100%? Thanks for your consideration on this matter.

That your PSA is that low isn't going to allow a rater to give you a 100% benefit. You'll need a statement in your medical record from your provider that clearly states that you're experiencing a relapse. Get a note from your doctor and all should be well for you. Good luck sir.
