psa jumped 10,000 pct

After being on adt 3 for the past 11 months and reaching a nadair of .005 3 months ago my psa has jumped to .5. If i figure correctly that is a 10,000 pct increase. Has anyone herd of this happening. Could it be a lab error.

Yes, it could be a lab error. You may ask for a redone with the same sample or just get it done in another laboratory.

HI : Why hasn't your MD ordered a "fPSA" (free PSA) and the new FDA approved PCA3 molecular gene urine test? This a another bio market. PSA is confronted with much controversy. And yes another PSA would be in order.
