Rising psa after radical surgery and radiation

It has been a while (fortunately) since I have posted here. In 2004, my husband was dx with pc.  He had laprascopic prostatectomy with positive margins.  PSA remained at 0.05 for 30 months then gradually increased to 0.09 over a 1 year span.  He underwent radiation therapy at that point and psa measured less than .1 at the completion of treatment.  His psa is now (28 months later) 0.2  His primary care physician did not notify him of any abnormal findings on his blood test results..we only knew of these numbers because we requested a copy of the report.  In your opinion, should this number be one of concern and if so, what would be the next treatment option?  Any information would help me because my husband is content with the fact that this number was not of concern to his primary care physician.
