The PSA test

Doctors measure the amount of PSA in your blood to help diagnose prostate cancer. There is no single PSA level that is considered normal. The reading varies from man to man and the level of PSA in the blood gets higher as men get older.

PSA is a protein produced by both normal and cancerous prostate cells. A high level of PSA can be a sign of cancer. But your PSA level can also be raised in prostate conditions that are not cancer (are benign) or if you have an infection. To check for PSA (prostate specific antigen), your doctor takes a sample of your blood.
