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

I understand our concern regarding your husband's elevated PSA.

PSA less than 10 value is not that accurate to predict prostate cancer. This can be due to the benign enlarged prostate in most cases.
If he does not have any symptom, it is better to wait and get another PSA test in 3 months on total fasting of 10 hours.
Also free PSA level should be checked besides total PSA .

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

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.
