At your age, your PSA is considered normal. Any PSA level below 4.0 is normal. Current guidelines say that we should stop checking PSA's after the age of 69 as the side effects of treatment are not worth the side effects to treat a prostate cancer that is most likely not going to kill you at that age. As long as you have seen a urologist and have had a prostate examination that is normal, I would recommend that no further PSA testing being done. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.
