Hold off: Psas can be elevated for many reasons, including uti, prostatitis, and prostate cancer. A psa of 300 is very high and very unusual. It would be wise to have a repeat psa and if it is still elevated consider a repeat 12 - 16 core biopsy. If prostate cancer is present, testosterone therapy will worsen it.
