The PSA test is a blood test that measures the amount of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by normal cells in the prostate and also by prostate cancer cells. It’s normal to have a small amount of PSA in your blood, and the amount rises as you get older and your prostate gets bigger. A raised PSA level may suggest you have a problem with your prostate, but not necessarily cancer.
We can refer you for a blood test at Spire St Anthony’s Hospital in Cheam where experienced and dedicated nurses will take a blood sample to be analysed in their modern laboratories. Your blood test result will be sent to your practitioner, usually within 24 to 48 hours.
