Hey Mark!

Though the PSA level is high it would be difficult to comment if this could be due to cancer, which may need further investigations such as free PSA and biopsy. The level of PSA is not really indicative of the stage or the grade of cancer and it would be difficult to say if the elevated level could have been detected earlier in case of a cancer. Aside cancer both elevated PSA and blood in urine can be seen in a few benign conditions as well. It would be best to consult your urologist for further investigation to come to a conclusive diagnosis.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
