PSA Blood Spot (Test Code 1413)

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA), is a protein produced by cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood. As a male gets older it is important to check PSA levels annually as a general health check-up. The PSA test can detect high levels of PSA that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. However, many other conditions, such as an enlarged or inflamed prostate, can also increase PSA levels.
