This is my first post to this site. Last week I learned that my PSA was 0.03ng/ml, the first detectable finding 8.5 years since my surgery. My urologist told me to test again in three months, and see him about the results. My PSA before surgery was 5.4, cancer stage T2c, Gleason score in pathology report 3+3. I gather from my reading that a recurrence, given the data above, 8.5 years out, is quite uncommon. Should I suspect a false positive in the test results, and retest now? Any suggestions or observations gladly received.
