kidney stones and psa level

I have 7 kidney stones in my left kidney and one in the right. PSA is 6.3. Can the stones be some of the cause?

Thank you for your question. A PSA of 6.3 ng/mL is cause for concern. Often times, PSA's higher than 4.0 are caused by malignancies. It is advisable that you have a repeat PSA, depending on the results a biopsy should be performed.
