Diagnosing Prostate Cancer: PSA Level Blood Tests are Essential

Diagnosing Prostate CancerProstate cancer typically affects men over the age of 45. Don’t ignore your symptoms, ask your primary care provider to run the appropriate testing and screening done on a regular basis. If you are symptomatic, there are several distinctive tests that urologists use to determine Prostate cancer or prostate disorders in men. The first is a digital examination by palpitating the prostate through the rectum to feel if it is enlarged. The second test is done through a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) count, which tests the blood for specific protein-synthesized prostate cells—the higher the number of PSA, the more likelihood of impending prostate cancer. There is also a more advanced test of free-range prostate PSA cells; this test typically reads higher in men that have undiagnosed prostate cancer. The earlier your PSA levels are checked, the better your chances of successful treatment and survival rate.

Prostate Cancer Symptoms
• Weak urination
• Interrupted urination
• Frequent urination
• Blood in urine
• Painful ejaculations
• Pain in pelvis, hips or thighs

Early diagnosis is the key to survival; however, it’s never too late. Getting a prostate cancer screening on a regular basis saves lives.
