Hello from JustAnswer.
This is an elevated level of PSA, both overall and according to age-specific normal ranges.
Although the PSA is a screening test for prostate cancer, there are other common conditions that can also raise the PSA level. For example, an infection of the prostate or benign enlargement of the prostate can also increase the level of PSA. Consequently, when there is an elevated level, the usual next step would be to see your doctor to look for evidence of any other conditions that can affect PSA.
