Urologist: The issue you are considering is not a do it yourself matter. You need to consult a urologist. S/he may wish to do an MRI or ultrasound study before deciding to do a biopsy. The urologist may also treat you with an antibiotic to see if the level would come down, if the elevation is due to infection.
