Well, your PSA is way above the "safe threshold" and it is strongly recommended to see a urologist. Your urologist may ask you to do additional tests, such as prostate MRI scan, or your urologist may recommend prostate biopsy directly, all of which are taken in the aim to determine whether you have prostate cancer.

 In general for PSA:

  • Safe: 0 to 2.5 ng/mL
  • Safe for most: 2.6 to 4 ng/mL. Talk with your doctor about other risk factors
  • Suspicious: 4 to 10 ng/mL. There’s a 25% chance you have prostate cancer.
  • Dangerous: 10 ng/mL and above. Talk to your doctor right away. There’s a 50% chance you have prostate cancer.
