Les has it correct as from John's numbers I saw that before too.
Now do we need to know how crazy PCa can be?? My brothers psa was 1.0 or 1.1 and his DRE the doc said he felt something (or lied for a biopsy -LOL), he is found with indolent PCa parameters as defined by the Brady Urology Dept. of John Hopkins. So what did he do even knowing his brother(me) has a likely death sentence with his own case? He has so far chosen 6 yrs. of W.W. or A.S. and no change in psa since and so far seems like a sane tour, his choice I advise him of testings and keeping up on it all. Not to scare you, but be aware of how wild PCa can be. Yearly check ups may be a righteous program. You also could end up with clear sailing for many horizons. If you live to be 80 yrs. old they say 80% of men could be diagnosed with some form of PCa, most do not die from it anyway.
