Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men (not counting skin cancer). It is also one of the leading causes of cancer death among men.
Screening for prostate cancer begins with a blood test called a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. This test measures the level of PSA in the blood. PSA is a substance made by the prostate. The levels of PSA in the blood can be higher in men who have prostate cancer. The PSA level may also be elevated in other conditions that affect the prostate.
Prostate cancer screening was once routinely recommended as part of regular checkups for men older than 50. That meant an average-risk man with no signs of prostate trouble would get a blood test looking for elevated levels of PSA, or prostate-specific antigen, a marker for possible prostate cancer.
Screening can help find cancers at an early stage, when they are likely to be easier to treat.
Because many factors can affect PSA levels, your doctor is the best person to interpret your PSA test results. If the PSA test is abnormal, your doctor may recommend a biopsy to find out if you have prostate cancer.
