Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.

I have reviewed your serial PSA reports and physical as well as radiological examination.
You don't need to do anything actively at this point of time other than probably repeat a PSA after 6 months.

I hope I have answered your query.

Regards.

Hi,

Thanks for reverting.

I would suggest that you get PSA repeated now itself and let your mind rest in peace.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.
