53 y/o white historically low PSA in the past 0.1 to 0.3. Last PSA 1/2014 was 0.2. Does historically low PSA lower future cancer risk. I take Lipitor (atorvastatin) ?

In brief: PSA

Although PSA is a sensitive indicator for prostate cancer, the prostate exam findings (size/nodules), rate of rise of the PSA, and %free PSA are other important considerations.
You probably have a smaller prostate in my experience with those #'s, but not unusual for your younger age either. Keep doing the prostate checks!
