ROCK...a biopsy with a PSA under 4? I wonder if we have the same doctor. It almost seemed as if he couldn't wait to get me to do a biopsy. It was done in his office so he makes the money from it. He told me any guy over 40 and a PSA over 2.5 should have a biopsy. But I've read almost every article I can on the web and most agree that the older we get, the normal PSA levels rise. Also levels between 4 and 10 are slightly elevated. Levels can easily be caused by an infection of slight enlargement over lots of sex prior to the test. So I would think most doctors would do a second test a several weeks later, maybe with antibiotics, to see if the PSA levels have come down before doing a biopsy.
