Last test was a 0.02.
 
Certainly nothing to 'worry about', but when has that ever stopped anyone from worrying anyway? 
 
That one was done at a different place with a different assay, and after a solid run of <0.01's from previous tests, it did get my attention.
 
Happy to rejoin the <0.01 with the most recent result.  This one was performed using the DPC Immulite 2000 method. 
 
I follow all my brothers here who have had post-surgery (or radiation) psa rises.  I hope for the best for all and will handle my turn in the barrel again if it comes, but man, what a relief!
