Here are some...: What does "PSA" mean in this question? A blood test or a clinical syndrome? Please specify it so an answer to the point could be given. Bone scan showing hot spots at the joints usually suggests the presence of some inflammation - arthritis. For detailing, ask the attending doctor ordering bone scan, who should possess more pertinent info about you than anyone online.
