Prostate-Specific Antigen Test - PSA Test

PSA


Test Code: 010322
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Prostate-Specific Antigen Test

The Prostate-Specific Antigen Test or PSA test is a common screening for prostate cancer. The PSA test measures a protein that is produced by the prostate gland. Elevated PSA levels from a prostate cancer test may indicate a higher likelihood of having prostate cancer. The PSA test is also used to monitor a person's response to cancer treatment.

It is important to note that not all cases of prostate cancer will show elevated levels on a prostate-specific antigen test and there are other conditions that may cause higher PSA levels besides cancer.

The PSA test is often recommended as a yearly screening for men over the age of 50. Those with a family history of prostate cancer may wish to begin screening earlier. The Prostate-Specific Antigen Free: Total Ratio test is also available for customers looking for a more comprehensive screening.

Turnaround for the prostate-specific antigen test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.

Results may be falsely elevated after a transrectal biopsy.
