When I had my PSA done last, the Uro explained to me that it may go, as it did for another of his patients, from .01. to .04 up to .08, and then decline from there. He said it was nothing to worry about. NOt that .08 was the high point, but you could possibly have a jump and then a fallback. I wouldn't worry. Stay well.
