Hi most like will check his psa again, Are you sure of the numbers, anything less than 1 is pretty low as you mention 0.3, do you mean 3.0?

Yes those are his numbers 0.3 were just afraid because there rising the hormonal therapy is quit working. Because his numers have been 0.1 and 0.2 for years

Those are very low numbers. When they get above 1 and 2 is the concern. What was his Gleason score?
