Common situation: Everyone seems to agree that psa is not a "perfect" cancer screening test. If it was everyone with psa elevation would be found to have cancer upon biopy and that isnt the case. It is still the only way of selecting men for biopsy. Continue to have semi-anual psa tests. A second biopsy my be indicated at some future time if it continues to rise over time.
