Frequently Asked Questions about Psa-total Prostate Specific Antigen, Total Test in Malapuram

What level of PSA is alarming?

Generally, a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) level above 4.0 ng/mL is considered elevated and may be concerning for prostate issues. However, interpreting PSA levels depends on various factors, including age, individual risk factors, and medical history. It is essential to consult with your doctor, who will evaluate the PSA level in a thorough clinical assessment to determine the appropriate course of action.

How is high PSA treated?

Treatment for high PSA levels depends on the underlying cause. If elevated PSA is due to benign conditions like prostate enlargement, your doctor might recommend lifestyle changes, medications, or procedures to manage the condition. If the high PSA indicates prostate cancer, further diagnostic tests, such as a biopsy, may be performed to confirm the diagnosis. Your doctor will finalize the treatment options for prostate cancer, which may include surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, or active surveillance tailored to the specific stage and characteristics of the cancer.

What is the difference between total PSA and FREE PSA?

Total PSA refers to the overall level of prostate-specific antigen in the bloodstream, including both bound and unbound forms. Free PSA specifically refers to the unbound or non-complexed PSA in the blood. The ratio of free PSA to total PSA can provide additional information to differentiate between benign prostate conditions and prostate cancer.
