At least 6 weeks: Psa will be elevated by any manipulation of the prostate including a biopsy. You should wait at least 6 weeks before having another psa checked.

Spa test: One study showed that it's recommended to wait longer than a week after a prostate biopsy to obtain a psa test. Another study recommended waiting at least 6 weeks after a prostate biopsy.
