Question
a recent test read 6.1 what do you think that means?

Answer
Hello
A single mildly elevated reading on its own is not clinically significant. Values between 4 and 10 can be seen in benign conditions of prostate also.

Conflation with physical, imaging findings of prostate is required. PSA can be repeated after 6 months to see if it shows further elevation or not
