PSA was 0.1 today.
We'll see what it's like in 3 months.
Sometimes those pre-PSA worries turn out to be correct. Dang!
I wish I was a bit more surprised.

Hopefully it is a one time anomoly and future tests will drop you back down to less than .1

You have NOT flunked out of the ZERO Club, one test is most likely a fluke, and your membership continues until proven otherwise. It's hard to do, but try not to think about it until the next test. I go for my three year PSA in a few weeks, and as always, try not to get worked up and just take things a day at a time.

Sorry to hear about that STW.  But, it could be a mistake. 
All your other post RP results were <.1.  For you to now hit exactly .1 seems like a bit of a coincidence. 
Maybe check with the lab and make sure they didn't leave off the < sign if you haven't already.
You also may want to consider getting an ultra sensitive test now and not waiting the 3 months.
I hope it was a lab error.

I too am sorry about your .1 however I also agree that this may be just a one time deal to. Since I am the self appointed president of the zero club (even though I am no longer a member) I am going to hold your membership for a few more months. All kidding aside I sure do hope it goes back down and I truly believe it will.

we all care and thanks for sharing

peace to you
