Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted with serum PSA of 8 should be investigated thoroughly to rule out cancer of the prostate.

Please consult qualified Urologist for Multicore Ultrasound guided biopsy of the prostate and other related investigations.

Hope I have answered your query .Please feel free if you have any more questions, I shall be happy to address the same.
Thanks and Regards.
