In brief: That is what it's...
Clinical significance of psa can widely vary among individual men: high psa doesn't mean we always can find prostate cancer in biopsy; low psa doesn't guarantee no prostate cancer either. More detail on psa-related subjects? To http://formefirst.

In brief: Possible
Either you have a case of prostatitis / BPH only or your biopsies have missed the target (not common).
Sometimes due to very small areas of cancer in the prostate a diagnosis can be hard to make.
