Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With negative biopsy, worries for cancer are over, raised PSA of 11 is not significant for cancer with negative biopsy results.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
