Welcome to HW. (Looks like you just found another peak to climb.)
When I had my first PSA during a routine physical it came back at 17.8.
I started Cipro but also started lining up what I wanted to do if it stayed high. After 3 weeks it was 22.+. By then, I had a surgeon in mind. He did the biopsy and the surgery.
Hopefully your PSA is high because you had s*x before your test or have prostatitis. But statistically, if you had to bet... It would not hurt to start lining up the carabiners, ropes, crampons, wire nuts, and ice tools you might need for this climb. Education is key.
Good luck to you. The view from this side still looks bright.
