Prostate test - PSA
Check the level of the Prostate Specific Antigen - PSA - in blood to verify a prostatic physiological alteration.
Men from 45 to 75 years old.
WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
The PSA level in blood gives an indication of the physiological condition of the prostate. Values above the norm may show a hypertrophy of the prostate. Size variation could be benign - due to a soft inflammation, for example - but it could also have malign causes. Checking the normality of the PSA value is a very good tool for verifying prostate health status and eventually taking the required preventive actions. In case of cancer, early detection and prevention can be life saving.
