Prostate Test-PSA

€ 14.90

  • WHAT ABOUT ?

    The prostate specific antigen is a protein secreted in the semen by the prostate. A part of this protein is found in the blood. Te blood PSA level allows estimating the prostate physiological condition. A value higher than the norm indicates prostatehypertrophy. Tis hypertrophy may be benign, be due to prostatitis or may be cancerous in case of adenocarcinoma.

  • FOR WHO?

    Men from 45 to 75 years old.

  • WHAT DOES IT DO?

    Check the level of the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)  in blood to verify a prostatic physiological alteration.

  • HOW DOES IT WORK?

    The PSA test allows determining a high blood level, above 4 ng/mL, of prostate specific antigen likely to show benign or malignant prostate hypertrophy.

  • WHY SHOULD I DO 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.
