You should discuss an elevated PSA test result with your doctor. There can be different reasons for an elevated PSA level, including prostate cancer, benign prostate enlargement, inflammation, infection, age, and race.
If you have no symptoms to suggest cancer are present, your doctor may recommend repeating tests regularly to watch for any changes. If your PSA level has been increasing or if a suspicious lump is detected your doctor may recommend other tests to determine if there is cancer or another problem in the prostate. A urine test may be used to detect a urinary tract infection or blood in the urine. Your doctor may recommend imaging tests to help determine whether urinary blockage is caused by an enlarged prostate. Medicine or surgery may be recommended if the problem is BPH or an infection.
If cancer is suspected, a biopsy is needed to determine whether cancer is present in the prostate.
