What is the PSA blood test?

PSA stands for prostate specific antigen, which is protein produced by both normal and cancerous prostate cells. A high level of PSA can be a sign of cancer but it can also be raised in prostate conditions that are not cancer (benign) if you have an infection.


What is normal PSA reading?

The reading will vary from man to man and the normal level increases with age. A value of 4 or less is generally considered to be normal. Occasionally a cancer may be diagnosed in a man with a PSA reading of less than 4. But generally speaking the higher the reading, the more likely it is to be cancer.


At what age should I have a PSA blood test done?

The PSA blood test is recommended for men age 40 with a family history of prostate cancer and for all men annually once they reach 50 years of age.
