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.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
