PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) – What i need to know

What is prostate-specific antigen (PSA)?

Prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, is produced by cells in the prostate. It is normal for small amounts of PSA to leak into your blood, and this amount increases as you get older because your prostate naturally gets bigger with age. PSA levels can be detected in your blood if you have a urine infection, but it could also be a sign of prostate cancer.

What is a PSA test?

A PSA test is a simple blood test that measures the level of PSA protein in your blood.

Who can have a PSA test?

If you are a man and over the age of 50, you can talk to your doctor about having a PSA test. You may be offered a PSA test as part of a general health check.

What causes high levels of PSA in the blood?

The clinic will operate normally from 21/04/2020 and hours 17:30 – 21:00 from Monday to Thursday in accordance with the instructions of the Panhellenic Medical Association for the use of personal protection measures against the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The Clinic uses a Philips AC0820 / 10 air purifier that removes up to 99.9% of COVID19 viruses and aerosols from the air.
