Hi Rob, the increase is not an issue at this point. Anything below one is good. Just keep an eye on it and test every few months. If your prostate has been removed and you still produce psa, it merely means that some of the prostate cells escaped removal and are still producing psa. ASlso your gleason score is quite low so the cancer you HAD was not a viable life threadening type.
Congrats on that!
