I got the results of my 2 year psa and it was 0.04 instead of <0.04, called the lab just to see if they left the < off by mistake and they said it is printed by computer as is run and can't be clerical error.
With my pre-op history, I was just wondering if this could be a sign that it might be on the rise.
I know this has probably been asked and ansered before.
Thanks and have a good day.
