EARLY DETECTION OF PROSTATE CANCER

PROSTATE SPECIFIC ANTIGEN

Prostate cancer is a common cancer in men. The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test measures the level of PSA in the blood. Elevated levels of PSA in the blood may indicate the presence of cancer, alternatively it can indicate infection or an enlarged prostate.

WHAT IS A PSA CHECK?

PSA screening has resulted in prostate cancers now identified earlier and treated more effectively. PSA testing is the first step when prostate cancer is possible, it is important to discuss screening results with your doctor.

The PSA test is a blood analysis that measures how much prostate-specific antigen is in the blood. Often a higher than normal PSA level in the blood can indicate cancer, further prostate testing can confirm results.

WHEN TO GET CHECKED

Many men with early-stage prostate cancer experience no symptoms, therefore it is important for men especially in high-risk groups to discuss the benefits of receiving a prostate test with their doctor.

NEXT STEPS

If prostate cancer is discovered, a Gleason Score will determine whether or not cancer is likely to grow and/or spread.

Prostate testing results will indicate if the PSA level in your blood is normal or abnormal. Results will determine if you should follow-up with your physician for further discussion.
