I Have High PSA Levels…
Your risk of prostate cancer is important, not just to you, but also to your family. If you or a loved one has recently had a high prostate-specific antigen (PSA) result or has a family history of prostate cancer, you may feel a lot of concern.
We understand that an elevated PSA can be worrisome.
…Does High PSA Mean Cancer?
PSA can be elevated for many reasons aside from cancer. Elevated results often create unneeded worry and typically lead to further tests like biopsies.
Less than 25% of men with an elevated PSA will have clinically significant prostate cancer.
That means more than 75% of men might not need a biopsy and can receive care that is based on their personalized risk level.
Most men with an elevated PSA
will have a prostate biopsy negative
for clinically significant cancer.
30 Seconds to Clarity and Peace of Mind
Better insights are as easy as providing a urine sample. A simple post-digital rectal exam (DRE) urine screening test in your doctor’s office that reveals your individualized risk score for prostate cancer based on your genes.
MyProstateScore 2.0 offers you and your doctor the clear, accurate insights you need to decide your next clinical steps.
Your PSA is one of the puzzle pieces illustrating risk.
A PSA test is a common blood test for determining your risk of prostate cancer. The higher the PSA, the higher the likelihood of a potential problem. Yet much is left unclear.
While PSA tests are important, they are far from perfect.
High PSA results can occur for many reasons, including:
- An enlarged prostate gland
- Prostate infection
- Recent sexual activity
- Rigorous exercise, such as a long bike ride
It’s a broad test for all men, leaving a lack of clarity.
PSA test results do not vary based on previous testing you have done or your personal genetic makeup: who you are as an individual. Those elements matter.
Your own genes reveal your prostate cancer risk at any given time.
You can find out a far more individualized answer for your level of risk, which can guide your next clinical steps.
