Brief Answer: I am concerned.... Detailed Answer: Hi, Sir you psa is strongly elevated and I am concerned about it. I would order for CT/MRI scan along with ultrasound guided biopsies to confirm and exclude prostate cancer. The elevated PSA level along with family history makes it important that you see an urologist at the earliest. Further management will depend upon the histopathology rrport and the extent of the spread. Hope I have answered all your queries. If you have further queries i will be glad to answer them.
