PSA Prostate Cancer Screening Test
Are you concerned about your risk for prostate cancer? Consider getting PSA screening.
All men are at risk for prostate cancer—you have the option to be proactive
More than 10% of men in the U.S. develop prostate cancer in their lifetime.1 Labcorp OnDemand’s PSA (prostate-specific antigen) Prostate Cancer Screening Test measures the level of prostate-specific antigen in your blood. Knowing your PSA number can help you and your healthcare provider figure out if further testing or treatment should be considered because an elevated PSA may be a sign of prostate cancer.
Age is the most common risk factor—the older you are, the greater the chance is of having prostate cancer. Many men with prostate cancer don’t show early symptoms and may not even know they have the disease.2
Note: This test does not indicate whether or not you have prostate cancer—but it gives proactive insight into your overall prostate health, which could lead to earlier diagnosis and better outcomes in some men with the disease.1 This test is not intended for patients who have undergone prostatectomy or those who have known prostate conditions. Talk to your healthcare provider to discuss if the PSA screening test is right for you. See below and in the FAQs for guideline recommendations and the benefits/risks of PSA screening.
No special preparation.
