Who is the Prostate PSA Auto-Test suitable for?
The Prostate PSA Auto-Test is suitable for men aged 50 to 74 with an average risk of prostate cancer. If prostate cancer runs in your family or if you are considered to be at high risk, you may consider taking the test before the age of 50.
When should the Prostate PSA Auto-Test not be performed?
The Prostate PSA Auto-Test should not be performed if a man has recently undergone any of the following activities that can increase the level of PSA in the blood:
Cycling/exercise test: wait 24 hours
Ejaculation: wait 24 hours
Prostate massage: wait 2-3 days
Transrectal ultrasound: wait 2-3 days
Cystoscopy: wait 1 week
Transurethral resection of the prostate/biopsy: wait 4-6 weeks
It is therefore recommended to wait the recommended time before performing the Prostate PSA Auto-Test to obtain accurate and reliable results.
If my result is positive, does this mean I have prostate cancer?
No, a positive result does not necessarily mean that you have prostate cancer. However, a high level of PSA in the blood can indicate changes in the physiological state of the prostate. It is important to know that a high level of PSA can also be caused by factors other than prostate cancer, such as inflammation or an enlarged prostate. If you have a positive result, it is therefore advisable to discuss this with your family doctor and undergo further medical examinations to determine the cause of the elevated PSA level.
