How to Use PSA Test If you've been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you are most likely using a PSA test. PSA is a blood test that measures the level of prostate-cancer-related protein in your blood. When you take a PSA test, your doctor will measure the test's results and send you a prescription. Your doctor will be able to see your PSA test results, but will be unable to determine whether your PSA level has gone up or down in the last month. This is normal. The levels of PSA in your blood are used by prostate cancer doctors as an estimate of your risk of prostate cancer. PSA test results are usually considered a baseline for comparing a new patient to a previous patient who had the same cancer.
There are many benefits to having a PSA test in addition to your regular yearly screening for prostate cancer.
