Why the high PCA3 score?

It looks to me like the highest PCA3 score you can get is 124 from the graph.  I just got a 111 and a 2.29 PSA with a normal DRE.  I just 20 needle prostate biopsy, no results until next week.  I don't understand why my PCA3 score is so high with the absence of other signs of prostate cancer, and the statistics indicate I will have a 75% probability that this biopsy will be positive because of the 111 PCA3 score.  Is this correct?
