I was 50 years old and had a radical prostatectomy in October of 2008, negative margines and no cancer in the lymphnodes. It was T1c and Gleason of 6. in 2009 my psa was .02 in 2010 psa was .01 and in 2011 psa was .03 Is there anything to worry about. I had herd that they have some concern when psa doubles within a year.
I don't believe the "doubling rate" falls into the PSA range you are in... usually referring to a PSA of 4 suddenly going to 8 in a year and then continuing to rise thereafter... I suggest reading the book "The invasion of the Prostate Snatchers and...." puts everything in perspective.
