PSA levels can increase due to some pathology.Infection like prostatitis,recent ejaculate,prostrate hypertrophy,cancer are common causes.Your reading is slightly high.It could be due to prostatitis.Normally masturbation shouldnt cause an increase but if your test your done after repeated ejaculation then the result could be false.Normally its advised to do the test after 2 days of abstinence.
