Elevated PSA with mono?

I am a 51 y/o. PSA has been: 1.0 in 2001. 1.7 in 2002, 4.3 in dec of 2011 and 6.3 in apr of 2012. DRE has been positive for enlarged prostrate for couple years.  I have been on medication for large prostrate about that long.  I have very low testosterone levels.  Have been taking bi-weekly shots for that.  Brings me up to normal lower level.  I have been scheduled for biopsy next month.  The urologist put me on antibiotic. Says to retest PSA in three weeks (1 week prior to scheduled biopsy.).   That all being said.  I had mono a little over five months ago.  I have been very run down last two months.  Was told today I have mono again.   What is the chance that the mono is making PSA elevated. How concerned should I be?
