    I had my prostate removed about 15 years ago along with removal of a part of my bladder that had been affected. Radiation was done two years later because the PSA had risen to the concern of my doctor, My Psa levels over the past 13 years have been nearly undetected. About 8 months ago my psa was 0.05 and last week when taken again it reached 0.16. Is this cause to be concerned?
