Product Information
Changes in psa levels are not uncommon in men as they get older and can be cause: by a number of factors including a urine infection, an enlarged prostate and prostate cancer 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. Prostate specific antigen (Psa) is a protein made by the prostate gland and is naturally secreted at low levels into the bloodstream. A raised psa level may be a sign of prostate cancer, but is more likely to be a sign of another condition that is not cancer, such as an enlarged prostate, prostatitis or a urine infection. The selfcheck prostate health test is a simple and reliable 10 minute test to detect raised levels of psa in a finger-Prick sample of blood. If you have a positive result, speak with your doctor who can review your symptoms and arrange for further tests to find out why your psa level is raised. An independent published trial of the rapid test device at the department of urology, friedrich schiller university, jena, germany (Berg et al, 1999), showed that the sensitivity was 91%And specificity 84% with a cutoff level of 4Ng/Ml of psa. Noted deviations were in the cutoff area between 3 and 5 ng/Ml. The authors conclude, "The qualitative psa one-Step test presented here demonstrates good reproducibility. It can be conducted by the patient and is easy to use: the test offers a simple, feasible method for early detection programs for prostate cancer". 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 use: for monitoring psa levels.
