Lot of things can cause an increase in PSA. And that include anything that irritates the prostate.

That includes, but not limited to things like having sec, exercise, a DRE, and prostatitis.


So it make sense to discuss those possibilities and if appropriate to treat the prostatitis.

Then redo the PSA in a few months.
