You are still in the 0 club. Anything less than .1 is in the 0 club. Your variation is called noise because you like me have had the ultrasensitive test which may bounce around a little just because of how sensitive the test is. Some guys don't get this test because it can drive you nuts with worry. They just get the test going to .1 level. As a matter of fact I just had my third test and am going to urologist on Monday for the results and checkup. So I know how you feel about this. I too have worried about salvage radiation if the PSA starts to rise, but you really don't have a trend yet. Nothing you can do about it except keeping getting tested as uro orders. Take a big breath and just breathe, that's what I try and do every 3 months...............
