Prostate removed in 2007? PSA came down to 52, now is 86.  How can number be so high?

If the prostate was removed for cancer (radical prosatectomy) then this represents a recurrence of the prostate cancer.  If it was not a radical operation, and only surgery for prostate enlargement, then the likelihood is that this represents either an infection or an inflammatory condition of the prostate
