Hi Buldozer and welcome to HW. As Allen said, the 2.0 level in and of itself is not too troubling but I cannot blame you for being concerned given your family history.
The sudden spike may be due to an infection so a course of anti-biotics might be a good idea. Also, you should definitely have another PSA test and you should ask for the PSA-free testing at the same time. Also, you might consider a PCA3 test at this time. See this link for info about
that test: www.pca3.org/public/
