Can someone tell me if i should be very concern. Two years ago my dad, 63, psa level was 4.5. he did a biopsy and there was a tiny asap in one of the areas and prostasitis in two areas. He has BPH. Subsequet it elevated to the highest of 7.1. In august 2012, his psa went back to within range to 3.3 after a consistent decline from previous readings. In January 2013, he was diagnosed with UTI. In March 2013, his PSA was 4.7, now he is being asked to do a repeat biopsy. Can anyone say what is the chance of cancer being present? Please help.View Thread
