A. Get a blood test for your PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level. This will be the starting point for discussions with an expert about further investigation into your prostate health.
You can do this via your GP, or you can talk to The Prostate Experts directly.
- A raised PSA is usually a sign of a prostate problem, which may or may not be prostate cancer. Often, it is caused by an infection, inflammation or the enlargement of the prostate gland, which naturally occurs as men age.
- A urological specialist will look at a raised PSA in the context of your overall health and family history. The prostate experts always recommend an MRI scan to fully understand your condition.
- The MRI scan will help to determine whether your condition is cancerous or non cancerous, and will inform what, if any, diagnostic investigation is required.
