Prostate is a part of the male reproductive system, it produces fluid that mixes with sperm to create semen. As a man ages issues with prostate are common and can lead to serious conditions such as prostate cancer if not diagnosed.
A PSA test cannot be relied on to either exclude the presence of prostate cancer or diagnose prostate cancer. If it’s low and you have symptoms you will need to see a doctor to consider further investigation, if it’s high you will need to see a Urologist who can investigate.
It's important to note that the total PSA test is not a definitive diagnostic test for prostate cancer and should be interpreted in conjunction with other laboratory tests and clinical data, as well as the patient's medical history, to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate gland and is used as a biomarker to screen for prostate cancer. The total PSA measures the level of PSA in the blood, providing important information about the health of the prostate gland.
