Diagnostic Blood Test:
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate. Elevations of PSA are a marker of prostate cancer or another prostate problem such as prostatitis or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). High PSA levels may indicate the need for re-testing, a prostate exam, or potentially a biopsy.
