Hello, My PSA went up to a 5, recommended prostate biopsy. The result was negative. Should be concerned? Thanks!

In brief: Follow-up

A negative biopsy result is good, however, you should follow your doctor's advice for continued vigilance and periodic check-ups.
There is no need to worry.

In brief: Not concerned, but..

Not every elevated PSA represents cancer.
Could be inflammation, enlargement or infection. The biopsy results are certainly reassuring, but that PSA should be monitored periodically.
