What can the PSA test tell me?
A raised PSA level can be a sign of a problem with your prostate. This could be:
– an enlarged prostate
– prostate cancer.
Other things can also cause men’s PSA levels to rise. If you have a raised PSA level, your GP might do other tests to find out what’s causing it, or they may refer you to see a specialist at the hospital.
The PSA test and prostate cancer
A raised PSA level can be a sign of prostate cancer. But many men with raised PSA levels don’t have prostate cancer. And some men with a normal PSA level do have prostate cancer.
You may be more likely to get prostate cancer if:
– you are aged 50 or over, or
– your father or brother has had it, or
– you are black.
