Went to the doc two days ago and my blood test came back with a PSA (prostate) spike from the 6/7 it has been for years to 16. Following up with urologist but wanted to ask if anyone in their 70’s has had similar test results and what it turned out to be
Most likely you have prostatitis, most commonly caused by infection, or prostate cancer.

You need a DRE (digital rectal exam) but even with a normal DRE a prostate biopsy is probably in the cards for you.

I know three guys who had prostate cancer. Two were in their 50's, one in his 80s.
Not an expert but according to Dr Google the most common age for prostate cancer is 65-69. I still think that most prostate cancer treatment is in the medicare age group. I could be wrong though.

As you may have guessed, yep, facing prostate cancer myself.
See if you can find a chapter of "Us Too" It's a (well, it was when I needed it in 1997) support group of & for prostate cancer survivors. I almost don't recommend them 'cause they like to tell horror stories & happy survivors are less likely to attend meetings than those for whom the disease returned after treatment - but you just take that with a grain of salt. Talk to a surgeon AND a glow-in-the-dark doctor. Remember, one wants to cut you, the other wants to burn you & each thinks his way is the best but you just take that with a grain of salt & make the decision that's best for you. The only upside for me was that I had a 25 year old cutie (female) looking up my gown once a week for awhile.
