Brief Answer:
No, it will not alter PSA levels.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have masturbated 12 hours before collecting blood sample to estimate Serum PSA..

Serum PSA is a enzyme secreted by prostate and it's level is basic landmark in screening of cancer of the prostate.It gets altered only when prostate is massaged or stimulated by rectal examination which does not happen in masturbation.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
