I am 68 years old, and my PSA levels since Nov. 2011 until Jul 13 3013 have been pretty consistent although high. 4.07, 4.82, 4.45, 4.32, although they are high they have actually lowered slightly. I have no other symptons and have no problems urinating. The last 2 times the urologist checked my prostrate with his finger, he said it felt fine.. Now as a result of my last psa of 4.32 they want to do a biopsy. I do not want to go through it, as frankly I am afraid of the side effects. So since my psa has been level if anything is coming down and taking into consideration the questions relating to the accuracy of the psa test ang with no other symptoms is a biopsy really necessary?
