Hi, welcome aboard!
Glad you found us, we have been waiting for you
Hopefully you are just visting for now.
I had an enlarged prostate back in mid-90's.
My PSA had been between 5 and 9 for 12 years before I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer last year. I had a biopsy in 2000 and one in 2004 and both were negative. I went from 2004 until 2012 without any testing so the good news is you are testing every 6 months at least.
The bad news is my surgeon said I probably had PCa for the past 10 years because my tumor was so large. A high PSA is a sign that something is going on so you are doing the right thing by getting your test and talking to a doctor.
I am sure some of my other brothers will join me by welcoming you and they will give their take on your stats.
