Is this for me?
This panel is one of the best ways to determine if your PSA (protein that is produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate) levels are within range for you to take the necessary precautions and treatments.
You might want to consider this test if:
* You are experiencing difficulty or painful urination
* If you have pain in the abdomen or pelvic region
* If you have frequent urgency to urinate
The PSA Panel test for 2 biomarkers: Total Prostate Specific Antigen and Free Prostate Specific Antigen
The Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test is a screening tool that helps evaluate the total volume of PSA in the blood. PSA is found in semen and in the bloodstream.
For low-risk individuals, a low result makes prostate cancer unlikely. Meanwhile, a raised PSA level is non-specific, as it can occur due to many other causes, including non-cancerous enlargement or inflammation of the prostate.
PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen): A glycoprotein secreted by epithelial cells in the prostate gland. A walnut-sized gland that sits below the bladder in males, with the urethra running through it. The prostate’s purpose is to secrete fluid that provides nutrients and protection for sperm. PSA plays a role in improving male fertility.
