High PSA value is highly suspicious, there is a chance of prostate malignancy. Anyway biopsy will prove or disprove it. PSA velocity rather single PSA value are more significant. Nothing to be worried, whatever may be the cause, prognosis is excellent and good treatment modality is available also. Follow your doctor's advice.
