Hello,Thank you for your question.I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.Please write your question in detail.
Why did you have the tests?

Did you have ultrasound?
Thank you for all the information,I feel you are concerned about cancer.
Though higher the level of PSA, the higher the risk but high PSA is not always diagnostic of cancer.
Inflammation & infection of prostate can also cause rise of PSA.
Recent sex, rectal examination & urine infection can also cause a rise.
As your doctor is not concerned, there is unlikely a serious issue.
However, an ultrasound can be taken if your doctor feels necessary.
You can discuss it with your doctor.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
Yes, there can be prostatitis without much symptoms.
However, an urine test, swab test can be taken before deciding on antibiotics.
Without definite evidence of infection, infection should not be prescribed.
Sometimes, it is possible to have erroneous result.
You can take a repeat test from another lab.
You are right.
If urine culture is negative you can wait sometime to have a repeat test.
