Prostatitis can raise psa, not just modestly but from normal to a level like yours and even higher. BHP can elevate psa but modestly, not normally to the level or even close to it as far as I know. At this point you should not be too concerned but it is an attention getter. Let's hope you have an infection that can be controlled and get that psa down.
