Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

How old are you?
PSA f 5.9 is not that high to b concerned about.
Benign enlarged prostate can cause such PSA level.
N40, M25.50, K 21.9 are diagnosis codes for various conditions.
N40 refers to enlarged prostate.
M25.50 to joint pain
K 21.9 to esophageal achalasia.
These diagnoses are not important for prostate problem.
The staph infection should not cause any serious problem as long as it is improving with local antibiotic cream.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
