Test Criteria

Helps you know your test better

Who should take the prostate health index (PHI) test?

  • The PHI test is often recommended for men with elevated PSA levels or those in high-risk groups, such as those with a family history of prostate cancer.

Why take the prostate health index (PHI) test?

  • The prostate health index (PHI) test is often recommended to look for early signs of prostate cancer. Examining fast-growing cancer early can also be helpful when the treatment is likely to be more successful.

What are the benefits of the prostate health index (PHI) test?

  • The several benefits of the prostate health index (PHI) include:
  • Helps to reduce prostate biopsies and over-diagnosis
  • Early detection
  • Plan and manage timely treatment
  • Risk assessment

Prostate Health Index (PHI) Test in Delhi

  • Widespread prostate cancer screening with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has led to a reduction in the proportion of men diagnosed with metastatic disease and prostate cancer death. However, PSA screening continues to be controversial due to its limited specificity for clinically significant prostate cancer, resulting in unnecessary biopsies for false positive results as well as the detection of some indolent tumors that would not have caused harm during the patient’s lifetime.
  • To preserve the benefits of screening and early detection, and to reduce these harms, alternative ways of using the PSA test with better performance characteristics have been suggested.
  • Several PSA isoforms have been identified that can further increase the specificity for prostate cancer. In particular, the p2PSA ([-2] form of pro PSA) has been seen to have improved performance over either total or free PSA for prostate cancer detection on biopsy.
  • The phi (Prostate Health Index) is a multifactorial mathematical combination of PSA, fPSA, and p2PSA ([-2]proPSA) concentrations designed to optimize clinical sensitivity and specificity to aid in the determination of the risk of prostate cancer. 
  • The significantly higher specificity of phi means a greater probability of detecting those patients who need a biopsy, allowing for a substantial decrease in the number of prostate biopsies that are reported as negative for cancer. phi has the potential to reduce negative biopsies by ~30%.
  • Low PHI has been seen to be associated with a lower risk of having prostate cancer and higher scores are associated with an increased risk. 
  • phi is three times more specific than PSA for detecting prostate cancer and it fills the diagnostic gap between PSA screening and a prostate biopsy.
  • Combined with family and patient history, the phi results can be used to determine the best-individualized patient management decisions.
  • phi is a simple and inexpensive blood test that should be used as part of a multivariable approach to screening and may be considered as part of the standard urologic armamentarium for biopsy decisions, risk stratification, and treatment selection for suspected prostate cancer.

Symptoms that may call for a Prostate Health Index (PHI) Test

Prostate cancer often does not show any symptoms in its early stages. However, as cancer starts progresses, the following symptoms may start to appear such as: 

  • Frequent urination especially at night 
  • Difficulty urinating 
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Pain or discomfort during ejaculation 
  • Pain or discomfort in the lower back, hips, or thighs 

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's crucial to prioritize your health and schedule a Prostate Health Index (PHI) test in Delhi today!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the prostate health index (PHI) test?
The prostate test is a blood test to assess men's risk of prostate cancer. This test combines measurements of various forms of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to provide a more accurate risk assessment.
    How does the PHI test differ from a standard PSA test?
    The standard PSA test measures the total PSA level in the blood, while the PHI test measures total PSA, free PSA, and [-2] pro-PSA. The PHA test ideally combines these measurements to provide a precise risk assessment.
      What do different PHI values indicate?
      Higher PHI values may suggest an increased risk of prostate cancer, while lower values may indicate a lower risk.
        What is the prostate health index test price in Delhi?
        The test price can vary from one diagnostic center to another, but with Redcliffe Labs, Delhi's health index test price is Rs 2299 only. So book your test today!
