Anything to worry about?

Been having my PSA levels checked since 2016 through a charity. No history of prostate cancer. (PSA History below).

Just lately I've been getting groin/hip pain and more difficulty peeing so I went and had PSA done again. The level has doubled in 1 year. Does this look worrying? Should I see my GP? P/S I'm 58.

A sudden jump like that with pain and urinary issues might be prostatitis, UTI, or PCa. See a urologist to sort it out.
