What does a PSA test involve?
A PSA test is a blood test for prostate cancer. A small amount of blood will be taken from a vein in your arm and sent to a laboratory to measure your PSA levels. This can be done in your doctor’s surgery.
You may also be offered a digital rectal examination, and some urine tests.
What happens after your PSA tests depends on your results. If you have slightly elevated PSA, you will be called back to have the test repeated at a later date. If you have a high PSA, your doctor may discuss referring you to a specialist, and you will be offered further tests such as a biopsy and/or an MRI.
