Description

The PSA test is recommended as follows:

  • Age 40 for men at high risk (those with more than one first-degree relative who had prostate cancer at an early age) Age 45 for men at high risk for developing prostate cancer, this includes African Americans and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother, or son) diagnosed with prostate cancer at an early age (younger than age 65) Age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer and are expected to live at least 10 more years

What to expect at the Prostate Cancer Screening:

  • PSA screening is a simple blood test that measures the presence of PSA (prostate-specific antigen) circulating in your bloodstream.
  • During your appointment, you will complete a health history questionnaire and have your blood drawn for the PSA test.
  • You will receive your results within a week. These results can be shared with your physician, if requested.
