What is a PSA-Count and where do I take it, how often?
PSA testing is a very useful tool in determining a man's risk of prostate cancer. Prostate cells produce a small amount of a protein that is known as prostate specific antigen (PSA).
Your GP will be able to send you for this PSA Blood test. When showing no signs of prostate illnesses, a PSA Test may be done every 5 years. If you have prostate problems it is highly advisable to take the test at least every 2 years.
How do I read my PSA-Test result?
A PSA count of 0 - 4 ng/mg is considered normal (The lower the better).
A PSA count of 4 – 10 ng/mg is considered slightly elevated (In most cases due to enlarged prostate and prostatitis) and reason enough to start treatment.
A PSA count of 10 – 20 ng/mg is considered moderately elevated and treatment has to be taken very seriously.
Anything above 20 ng/mg is to high and immediate action should be taken.
It is very important to note that low PSA-results does not rule out Prostate illnesses. Men with a low PSA-count can also have symptoms of prostate illness and side effects - start treatment immediately.
There are also situations where alarmingly high PSA counts are also false due to other reasons such as recent orgasm or medicines.
A High PSA Count does not mean that you have cancer. You may test for cancer by asking your urologist for a biopsy tests (Where small samples of your prostate will be taken for testing).
My PSA-Count is very high – what can you do for me?
If this high count is due to prostate inflammation or enlargement P-Care Za can assist in lowering your PSA count. The PSA-count normally takes a while to decrease after treatment.
For example most patients who have tested the PSA count again just after treatment did not show a dramatic decrease in the test results, but when tested again after 2-3 months the PSA count decreased even when only a once-off treatment of 20 days were taken.
