Congratulations! Great number. Party time!
The less than sign indicates that the test result is below what the test can detect. There are labs that would have reported this number as "less than" .1
The ultra-sensitive tests can read very low PSA amounts. At this point the absolute number isn't that important. .08 isn't much PSA. The only thing to worry about
is if the follow up PSA tests start to rise. As long as it stays around .08, you're good.
Hang in there, you're doing great.
I'll be in the shop.
