What does this PSA level mean?

The PSA level listed on my blood testing report indicates it is 5,363. I don't see anywhere this level is listed in the thousands, rather like the quote below, where levels above 4 are a concern. So is the 5,363 PSA result a concern?

"When prostate cancer develops, the PSA level usually goes above 4. Still, a level below 4 does not guarantee that a man doesn't have cancer — about 15% of men with a PSA below 4 will have prostate cancer on biopsy. Men with a borderline PSA level between 4 and 10 have about a 1 in 4 chance of having prostate cancer. If the PSA is more than 10, the chance of having prostate cancer is more than 50%."

That certainly sounds like an ERROR.

Have it redone. In fact I am surprised that your doctor has not already done this.
