Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): PSA is a protein made by the prostate. PSA is mostly found in semen, but can also be found in blood. A PSA test is a blood test that checks your PSA level.
High PSA levels provide a clue that a man may have prostate cancer. High levels could also be caused by non-cancerous conditions like infection, or an enlarged prostate.
If further investigation finds that cancer is present, treatment options will be made available. After treatment, your doctor will continue to monitor your PSA levels. If any prostate cancer cells remain after treatment they would cause a rise in the PSA.View Brochure
