Early detection is your best protection, so why not use the same test as you Doctor uses to get immediate and accurate information on your prostate.
What is a PSA test?
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein made by the prostate gland, which is naturally secreted into the blood stream. A raised PSA level can be due to conditions such as enlargement of the prostate gland, prostatitis or urinary infections. It can also be an early indication of prostate cancer. The PSA test is the most valuable tool available for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Why is this test important to me?
This simple test detects abnormal levels of PSA in the blood stream. Elevated PSA may be a sign of possible prostate disease, which affects 1 in 6 men in the UK.
