Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
The prostate gland is a critical element in men’s sexual health by contributing to the fluids that carry semen. Over time, it can grow and impair urinary function.
This test will check for an enlarged prostate in men between the ages of 55 – 69 and others who are at high risk for prostate cancer. A level of 4.0 to 10.0 ng/mL is suspicious and might suggest the possibility of prostate cancer. It is associated with a 25% chance of having prostate cancer. 10.0 ng/mL and above is dangerous and should be discussed with your doctor immediately. It is associated with a 50% chance of having prostate cancer.
This test is meant for individuals wanting to track PSA without the other components included in the other Men’s health panels.
