⚠️GET YOUR PSA CHECKED!

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

– prostatitis

– 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.
