I am a cancer doctor

yes, that is a big jump in PSA,

your PSA needs to be rechecked again to see if that 9.9 is real or if it is a false elevation from infection

if it is real, then you might need a prostate biopsy to check for prostate cancer in your

did the MRI guided prostate biopsy show areas of prostate cancer? if no cancer, then there is no need to worry

and the PSA can continue to be watched?

atypica of the cells in the prostate is ok and not prostate cancer.
