read Kennethpm answer and I agree with him. My husband had no family h/o prostate cancer and no s/s of any problem until last dec on his regular exam his psa came back 6.7. No panic pmd said we'll repeat the test and this time it came back 7.9. still no panic he said go to your urologist. Dre (-) re[eat psa now 9.0 these were all i month apart. Biopsy came back gleason 7 on one side and 6 on the other. Needless to say now I was panicked. Did not know what to do and pmd was no help even though he is the chief of nephrology at the local hospital. The urologist wanted to do seed implant with fu radiation. I went to the computer and researched ur options and thats when we decided on the Robot. You need to be your own advocate and decide whats best for you after you hear all your options. In your case you dont seem to have a problen now, but you have been forewarned by your family hx. I have two sons and I'm on their back to make sure they get their prostate checked regularly. Good Luck. Your getting good advise on this forum
