Understanding PSA

Your PSA level is in the normal range. This is a reassuring result.

Given your age or medical history, many doctors would question whether it makes sense to have your PSA tested regularly. This is because prostate cancer is often a slow-growing disease, especially in older men. Even if prostate cancer is detected, the risks of side effects from treatment may be greater than any potential benefits.

Speak with your doctor about whether it makes sense to continue being screened for prostate cancer on a regular basis.
