PSA (prostate specific antigen) is a protein produced mainly by cells in the prostate gland and can be a useful indicator of prostate cancer. This protein can be found in all males; however, men whose levels are increased may have an infection of the prostate gland (prostatitis), prostate enlargement or prostate cancer.

 

 

PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels in the blood are measured in this blood test. In situations of prostate cancer, PSA levels might be high.

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a marker that may be utilised for both screening and therapy of prostate cancer.

While the PSA test can aid in the early detection of prostate cancer, it has significant drawbacks when used as a screening tool. Before purchasing this test, we recommend that you conduct as much research as possible and get familiar with the dangers and advantages of taking a PSA test.

 

Is it suitable for you?

Do you have a friend or family member who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and you're concerned about your own prostate health? Are you over 50 - or 45 - and have risk factors for prostate cancer, such as a close relative who has been diagnosed? Have you had prostate cancer treatment and want to keep track of your PSA levels? This is the test for you if you have carefully considered the risks, advantages, and drawbacks of a PSA test and have decided to proceed.

Prostate cancer can develop extremely slowly in certain circumstances, never causing symptoms or shortening life expectancy. A considerable number of guys who get a genuine positive test may end up having surgery they don't need.

 

When should you see a doctor?

Please contact your doctor for a comprehensive evaluation if you have any urinary symptoms such as the urge to pee frequently, trouble starting or halting the flow of urine, discomfort during sex, or any other urinary symptoms. You should not use a PSA test to diagnose yourself.
