PSA stands for "prostate-specific antigen" which is found in your blood. It is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate. The prostate is a part of the male reproductive system. It is located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. PSA test is conducted to screen for prostate cancer. It is a blood test. There are two types of PSA tests: a total PSA test and a free PSA test. The antigens in the blood can be bound as well as free-floating. The prostate-specific antigen that is bound to other proteins is called a bound PSA and the antigen that is free flowing in the blood without attaching itself to other proteins is called free PSA. Separate tests are required for free PSA and total PSA. In free PSA, the sample is tested for the presence of free antigens (that are not bound to other proteins) and in the total PSA test both bound and free antigens are observed. Sometimes, depending on the patient's health, single or both tests are needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a PSA test do?

It measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen in a man's blood. The prostate gland is found in males. The test is normally conducted to find if there are signs of prostate cancer. The levels of PSA will be elevated if the cancer is there or if there is a possibility of the cancer setting in.

Can I do a PSA test at home?

You can get your blood sample – which is needed for a PSA test – collected from your home but the actual test is done in our advanced laboratory. There is no small gadget where you can put a drop of blood and it will show you levels of PSA. It is a completely simple procedure. You don't even need to visit our laboratory either to submit your blood sample or to get the results. Just let us know from our website, or simply give us a call and the blood sample will be collected by one of our technicians and submitted to the laboratory on your behalf. In less than 48 hours you will have the PSA test results with you.

Do I need to make special arrangements, for example, fast, before my PSA test?

There is no need to fast, as, the PSA level is not affected by what you eat or what you drink. If there is a medication that can have an impact on the levels of PSA in your blood, let it be known to your doctor and he or she will take that fact into consideration when recommending the PSA test or when analyzing the test results.

When is the right to get a PSA test done?

We have listed the symptoms above. If you are experiencing one or a few of the symptoms mentioned above, you should go for a PSA test. If you have had a history of prostate cancer in your family, then it is recommended that you get your PSA test done at an interval recommended by your doctor.

What can a PSA test reveal to me?

A PSA test reveals whether you have elevated levels of PSA in your blood. This can indicate prostate cancer. This can also indicate an enlarged prostate or prostatitis (which can be treated with antibiotics easily).

Is a prostate test risky?

If you go for a PSA test where your blood is drawn from one of your veins in your arm, not much hassle is involved. The blood will be drawn by a trained technician from our laboratory. In a manual prostrate exam, there can be a slight discomfort as your doctor may insert a probe or even fingers into your rectum to physically feel your prostate. Your doctor can recommend which type of PSA test is required.
