In my opinion that is too high a value to ignore. If those were my numbers I'd be asking for copies the lab reports. That will tell you what machine and protocol was used. See if they are the same machine and if the values really were to 2 decimals. Two readings at 0.2 is generally considered a recurrence. The earlier you get it, the better.
How soon can you get your next PSA and appointment?
FYI here are my post DaVinci numbers:
I am in a study comparing the older ultra sensitive 2 decimal protocol (2006) with the new, more selective method (2010)
As you can see the older method reports a slightly higher value and my results are quite stable.
1/14 6 months - 0.05 (Siemens Centaur)
4/14 9 months - 0.04 (Siemens Centaur) and <0.01 (Roche ECLIA).
7/12 1 year - 0.03 (Siemens Centaur, direct chemilum); <0.01 (Roche Cobas 601 ECLIA)
10/22 15 months- 0.03 (Siemens Centaur, direct chemilum); <0.01 (Roche Cobas 601 ECLIA)
Personally if my Roche Cobas result ever gets above 0.05, I'll be on it so fast it will make my pee pad spin.
Good luck to you.
