Brief Answer:
You are PSA values are well within normal range .Not to be worried about

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

PSA values of 2ng of Total PSA and 1 ng of Free are well within normal range of 4 ng. It signify that you do not have any prostate pathology .

The ratio of Free PSA to Total PSA is significant and demands prostate biopsy only when Total PSA is raised above 4.1 ng .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
