Hello

There is no evidence that this would happen.

If your PSA is going up, you need to see a urologist right away.

IT WENT FROM 4.5 TO 5

That is not significant, but over normal.

You should have a free psa and a prostatic ultrasound, from a urologist, to see if you need a biopsy.

This sounds like you are OK.

In fact, I would suppose your doctor has told you this.
