Hello and welcome Brandes,
Can understand why you would feel so worried about
PC with that much in your family. At this point, with a PSA of .4 at your age, and a negative DRE, and with what you doctor has said, highly unlikely that you don't have PC. Since it runs in your family on your father's side, at least you have an early warning, and you should continue to have a yearly PSA test in my opinion now that you have established a base line PSA.
As far as feeling anything in advance of a PC dx, many of us didn't know or feel a thing, didn't have any obvious prostate issues, and our PC diagnosis were picked up by rising PSA scores and then with Prostate Biopsies.
Glad you came aboard, hope we can give you some peace of mind.
Hope your father does better at some point, sorry to hear about
