Changes in PSA levels are not uncommon in men as they get older and can be caused by a number of factors, however, more PSA is released when there is a problem with the prostate. Prostate problems that result in elevated PSA include prostatitis, enlarged prostate or prostate cancer.
This test is recommended for men aged 50+ and those with a family history of prostate disorders. If you fall within these categories you should perform this test regularly (as a minimum once a year). Those with a family history of prostate disorders should consider testing earlier and more regularly. Healthy individuals may also benefit from annual checks.
An easy to use home test that detects raised levels of a protein Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) associated with abnormalities associated with the prostate gland.
All of the conditions can be treated more effectively and efficiently if medical advice and intervention begins as early as possible. Prostate cancer remains the number one cause of cancer in men and, given that the UK has an ageing population, this is unlikely to change. Men are advised to carry out PSA examinations and screening annually from the age of 50-60 onwards and, where there is family history of prostate disease, it may be wise to undertake screening sooner. The SELFCheck Prostate Health (PSA) self-test is a simple and reliable way to check for elevated levels of PSA.
Medical conditions like prostate and bowel disorders are not easily discussed and can be embarrassing or awkward; therefore, a simple home SELFCheck screening test can provide men with the incentive needed to seek medical advice. The benefit of carrying out a SELFCheck Prostate Health Test in privacy ensures confidentiality as well as creating the incentive needed to take further steps in terms of managing personal health earlier. Consultation with a healthcare professional will facilitate earlier medical intervention. The test is easy to use, only requiring a small finger prick blood spot to perform the test and a visual result is available in 10 minutes.
The SELFCheck Prostate Health Test is a screening test giving a yes/no answer as to whether your PSA levels are higher than normal and are not intended to be used for monitoring PSA levels.
