PSA just jumped to 9.5.

A year ago got intense pain in prostate. Do have a history of acute infectious prostatitus, which in the past took a week or so to get better. This time not, and after six months epididymis started hurting too. A year ago PSA was 6.5, dropped to 3.5 5 months ago, then a week ago was 9.5. I'm terrified. Biopsy scheduled next week. Should I insist on MRI guided biopsy? I'm terrified frankly.

Re: PSA just jumped to 9.5.

MRI fusion biopsy is the way to go.
