It does not help: Psa is a screening test for prostate cancer. Base don this value, you are unlikely to have prostate cancer. It doe snot exclude enlarged prostate. It is not a relevant test in your case anyway.

Too young: At your age an enlarged prostate would be most unusual. Some men with enlarged prostates do not have an elevated psa although it is common for an enlarged prostate to put out high levels of psa. With a rectal exam your physician can detect an enlarged prostate.
