On the balance of things at your age it's unusual to have Prostate Cancer. An enlarged prostate is often benign and quite common. A raised psa with an enlarged prostate is often benign and quite common. The enlarged prostate gives off more psa. Urinary symptoms can happen for a lot of reasons.
It's a matter of probability and only a biopsy can actually say for certain. Even an MRI can only tell the doctor where to put the biopsy needles. That is if the MRI finds anything suspicious.
There are some figures somewhere about the probability but I'm not sure where I saw it. I recall that with my psa of 9.9 and age at the time of 67 the probability was less than 50% which means over 50% of cases must be tested and found not to have it. If I were you I'd feel some concern but try to tell myself it's unlikely.
