Prostate cancer is a silent disease that grows without any symptoms in the early stages and hence often goes undetected until the cancer has become [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] too advanced. This is where PSA becomes useful as it can detect early signs of prostate cancer and other prostate disorders even when there are no outwardly signs in the health condition.
Understanding PSA
PSA is the abbreviated form of prostate [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] specific antigen, which requires a blood test for the detection of the antigen count in the blood. [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] According to study, the count of the antigen rises in [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] men suffering from prostate cancer. The rise in the antigen [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] count is noticeable even in the initial stages of the disease. PSA is therefore considered an important test and is recommended for men as a primary medical investigation for early detection of prostate cancer beyond a certain age.
In layman terminology, PSA is regarded as a marker protein that is indicative to being generated in the prostate gland. In the normal human body (male) a little amount of the PSA protein gets released into the blood stream, hence, it is normal for a small count of PSA to show up in a routine blood test. However, when a blood sample shows an elevated PSA count, it [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] can be indicative of prostate related problems, which may be [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] linked to prostate cancer.
Studies also reveal that the PSA count in older men is often higher than in younger men. The high PSA count can be attributed to an enlarged prostate and may not necessarily be due to the dreaded cancer.
Is PSA Result Foolproof?
There are some controversies regarding the benefits of the PSA test for prostate cancer as there have been instances where the blood tests have revealed low counts of PSA in patients affected with the disease. There is still debate in the medical field if the PSA test can be considered at face value as some tests have also proven the results of PSA to be [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] false-negative in some patients.
Most doctors do not rely on the PSA results alone and carry out further investigations on patients who show other symptoms of the disease. As a precautionary measure, the screening for prostate cancer these days also includes a rectal examination as it is [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] considered to be more accurate in detecting the disease.
PSA is generally not recommended as a screening for men who do not show any indication of having prostate cancer. The PSA test is however carried out as part of preliminary investigation if the patient is [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] above 50 years of age and shows symptoms akin to those of prostate cancer. These symptoms may include having trouble urinating, pain, and itching in the urethra, blood in urine, [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] and inconsistency. Further tests are mandatory if the PSA count is higher than normal levels. Treatment is started only when the disease has been medically established.
In case the PSA count is [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] within normal limits and the symptoms of prostate cancer still persist, doctors usually follows it up with further investigation to rule out prostate cancer.
