Men whose initial PSA level is greater than or equal to 2.5 ng/mL should undergo annual testing; men with a lower initial level can be tested every two years.

We suggest not performing digital rectal examination (DRE) for prostate cancer screening either alone or in combination with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening. Although DRE has long been used to diagnose prostate cancer, no controlled studies have shown a reduction in the morbidity or mortality of prostate cancer when detected by DRE at any age.

There are inherent limitations to the DRE. It can detect palpable abnormalities (eg, nodules, asymmetry, or induration) in the posterior and lateral aspects of the prostate gland where the majority of cancers arise; however, other areas of the prostate where cancer occurs are not reachable by a finger examination. Furthermore, the majority of cancers detected by digital examination alone are clinically or pathologically advanced.

PSA increases more rapidly in men with prostate cancer than in healthy men. The Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA) found that men with a PSA rate of change (PSA velocity) greater than 0.75 ng/mL/year were at increased risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer

So the recommendation for you is to get a repeat PSA unless you are high-risk of developing prostate cancer (eg, black men and men with a first-degree relative with prostate cancer diagnosed before age 65) then you should have it done yearly.
