PSA Blood Test in Bangalore

What is a PSA test?

The PSA or Prostate-specific antigen is a protein that is produced by the cells of the prostate gland. Apart from the normal cells, even cancerous tissues in the gland secrete PSA. The PSA normally circulates in the blood and is thus detected through a PSA blood test in Bangalore. The PSA protein can bind to other proteins or move freely in the blood. There are three types of PSA blood test:

  • PSA total test that calculates the total amount of PSA in blood, whether it is in bound or free form.
  • PSA free test only measures the amount of PSA that is present freely in the blood and is not bound to any other protein.

Abnormally high levels of PSA indicate the presence of cancerous tissues in the gland or a condition known as prostatitis.

Why is a PSA test conducted?

A prostate blood test in Bangalore is generally done to diagnose the presence of prostate cancer in its early stage so that efficient treatment can be provided. The prostate test is also conducted for people who are at a higher risk of getting prostate cancer. You might be suggested for a PSA test if you had a family history of prostate cancer, that is if your father or brother was suffering from prostate cancer. Since prostate cancer is more common in the elderly, therefore, men above the age of 50 are generally advised for a PSA test. In people who have already been diagnosed with prostate cancer, a PSA test is done to monitor the effects of treatment on cancer or to choose an appropriate treatment plan for your cancer. 

What are the symptoms that can lead you to a PSA test?

Some of the symptoms due to which your doctor can prescribe you a PSA test are:

  • Presence of blood in the urine
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Bone pain
  • Presence of blood in semen
  • Inability to control bladder
  • Slow or delayed start of urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Painful urination
  • Leakage of urination
  • Pelvic pain
  • Back pain

How is the PSA test done?

A PSA lab test is a simple diagnostic blood test that uses blood samples to predict the values of PSA. The process of sample collection is very similar to the one collected in any normal blood test. Firstly, an antiseptic will be applied on your arm at the point from where the blood has to be collected. The blood will be collected from the vein of your arm through a needle. The blood is collected in a vial which is then sent to the laboratory for testing.

How can I interpret the results of my PSA test?

The PSA tests are very easy to interpret. High levels of PSA indicate chances of prostate cancer. The risk of prostate cancer in patients is determined by the ratio of free PSA levels and total PSA levels. If the ratio of free PSA to total PSA levels is high, it indicates a lower risk of prostate cancer in the patient whereas, if the ratio of free PSA to total PSA levels is low, it indicates a high possibility of prostate cancer in the patient. Sometimes, apart from cancer, there is a possibility of inflammation in the prostate gland that can increase the levels of PSA in the blood. This condition of prostate inflammation is known as prostatitis. Low levels of PSA in the blood are generally rare and are not a matter of medical concern or emergency.

What is the optimum range of PSA in the body?

The normal range of PSA depends upon the age of the male. If your age is between 40 - 49, then the PSA levels must be within 2.5 ng/mL, if your age is between 50 - 59, then the levels of PSA in your blood must be less than 3.5 ng/mL. If you have an age that ranges from 60 - 69, then the PSA levels are generally less than 4.5 ng/mL and if in case your age is between 70 - 79, then the optimum level of PSA in your blood is below 6.5 ng/mL.

What does the PSA test cost in Bangalore?

The PSA test is a simple process and is quite affordable. The PSA test cost in Bangalore at Redcliffe Labs is approximately Rs 1500/- which under special discounts is currently available at Rs 600/- only.
