Ankylosing Spondylitis & prostate problems

I am a 57 yr old male diagnosed w/ AS in my late 20's & now am experiencing high PSA counts and after going through several biopsies that all come back negative for cancer, my wife & I are wondering if anyone else with Ankylosing Spondylitis have experienced a high PSA count (20+) because of an enlarged prostate?

I googled ankylosing spondylitis and then serached with the results for prostate.  I found several sources indicating that there is a significant increase of inflammation of the prostate in men with AS.  I will send you a private note shortly.
