An elevated PSA should raise the suspicion of prostate cancer. There are other conditions where the PSA can also rise but it is essential to rule out prostate cancer by a biopsy even if digital rectal examination is normal.
This is for patient information only and does not substitute for medical advice.Consultation with a urologist is essential.
Has your husband been referred to a urologist? Have they rerun the test to be sure it is an accurate reading? What from I have read, a greater than .75 change in PSA (velocity) over a given year would generally generate a referral. Try not to worry. From my understanding, there are a number of reasons he may have an elevated psa. But, in any case, he should probably pursue some answers.
