Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

If PSA Levels raised from initial low to high levels , than next step that is to go for Ultrasound to check prostate size , followed by prostate biopsy. Prostate biopsy is often done using a thin needle that's inserted into the prostate to collect tissue. The tissue sample is analyzed in a lab to determine whether cancer cells are present.

This is appropriate next step .

Please proceed for it.

Regards ***** ***** luck .
