As far as I am concerned, you husband still is a solid Zero on his PSA, and has nothing to worry about.
If it were up to me, I don't think anything should be reported lower than <.1, anything else causes needless worry and fear, something us PC people already have enough of.
Even my first one spooked me. It was .05. I was disapointed that it wasn't a .01, or as some show, .001. My doctor said it was real good, and it is good. So now, when I do my next one in May, it is .06, I will be paranoid that I am doomed for reaccurance.
