In brief: You Should consider

Normal PSA ( Prostatic Specific Antigen ) 2.
5- 3.0 ng/ml Based on the levels , examination of prostate , due to peak incidence at your age , your doctor recommended and follow your doctor's advise , it is a low risk procedure ,At your age yes if you are two more decades older (75) then will be no (now most take that path )
