At age 77 a PSA of 3.9 is considered normal. IT should be monitored with digital rectal exams and PSA. Unless there is more rapid increase, do not be too concerned,

Agree with Dr. Licker. Taking unwarranted medications is likely to do more harm than good. Repeat testing as advised by your doctor is a reasonable approach. Wish you good health!
