PSA-Total Prostate Specific Antigen Test


Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein that is made by the prostate gland, as well as the urethra and urethral gland. The TPSA Serum test is utilized to quantify the amount of prostate-specific antigen in the bloodstream. It can be detected in extremely small amounts in the bloodstream. Levels rise in benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostatitis, or prostate cancer. TPSA is a useful instrument for detecting and averting prostate cancer in men at an early stage. This is due to its ability to signal the necessity for additional testing or treatment if there are any changes in the prostate. It is also utilized for tracking the development of the illness.

The PSA-Total (Prostate Specific Antigen) test measures the level of a protein produced by the prostate gland in the blood. Elevated levels can indicate prostate issues such as inflammation, enlargement, or cancer, though further evaluation is often needed for diagnosis.

During a PSA-Total test, a healthcare provider will draw a blood sample. The procedure is quick and involves minimal discomfort. Results are typically available within a few days, allowing for further evaluation if necessary.

If PSA-Total results are abnormal, further evaluation may be needed, including additional tests like a digital rectal exam or prostate biopsy. An abnormal result doesn't necessarily indicate cancer but warrants discussion with a healthcare provider for appropriate follow-up and management.

Before a PSA-Total test, it's generally recommended to avoid certain activities that may affect PSA levels, such as ejaculation or vigorous exercise, for at least 48 hours. Additionally, inform your doctor about any medications or supplements you're taking.
