It is an ongoing discussion here about
the value of extended precision PSA. If your first PSA was .09, then an increase to .1 is a small one, and can be explained by several factors. If your first PSA was a .01 or .02, then a .1 is a significant jump.
My personal advice would be to wait, maybe in 4 weeks have another PSA test and see what it says. Most URO's will want 2 or 3 consecutive increases before they start the next treatment phase.
Best of luck as you watch these numbers. It may just be a bad day at the lab, and will be <.1 the next time.
