How much?: A rising psa represents increasing mass of prostatic tissue, including increasing mass of prostatic cancer tissue. Lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and your doctor is in the best position to do that.

Not enough info: You describe a complex situation that requires complete review of the medical record. Questions that need to be answered include: - cancer grade - psa at diagnosis - rate of psa rise - stage, ?Mets? - duration of hormones - how long since radiation... See your urologist or radiation oncologist and ask them all of your questions. If you don't feel comfortable with them, seek another opinion.
