I don't mean to scare you, but you must find exactly the level of your PSA, as well as the ratio of "free to total" PSA. Slighly elevated PSA means nothing. I had 3.1 and was subsequently diagnozed with cancer (am 53 yrs. old in very good shape). Based on my experience, and general medical knowledge, most early cancers create "no inflamation, or any detectible (feel type) symptoms. The prostate cancer typically evolves in the peripheral zone of the prosate unlike BPH (benign version) which evolves in the transition zone. The tansition zone is close to urethra and consequently creates a typical, talked about, symptoms. Early cancer may be measured by slight elevation of the PSA, but it is confirmed if the ratio of free/total is less than 25%. Of course, digital exam is a must, which, if neccessary, is followed by a biopsy. Let me know how you make out.
P.S. I posted my question on the buliten board re RP follow up.
