Product Description

The Home Prostate Health Test provides a fast indication of above-the-normal range levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA).

Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a blood protein secreted by your prostate gland. PSA appears in the blood in higher than normal concentrations when the gland is enlarged or cancerous. Monitoring the prostate as a key biomarker is important for men over the age of 50.

Abnormal levels of Prostate Specific Antigen in your blood can be an indicator that further investigation of the prostate is required.

▶ HOW IT WORKS:

This test uses a small sample of blood in a compact testing kit which is mailed directly to you. In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample and testing process in 10 minutes.

The easy-to-use CE-approved testing kit is shipped within 24 business hours.

▶ PROSTATE ISSUES SYMPTOMS:

Monitoring your prostate health can provide valuable early warning signs and allow quicker additional diagnostics. Common symptoms include:

  • Increased need to urinate
  • Straining while urinating
  • The feeling of a full bladder

Items Tested

The prostate antigen (PSA) is secreted by the prostate gland, which is situated in the abdomen under the bladder surrounding part of the urethra and plays an important role in semen production.

The prostate antigen level gives information about the prostate physiological condition. Levels above normal may indicate a range of conditions, including benign hypertrophy, prostatitis or cancer.

▶ A PSA level higher than 4μIU/mL indicates a higher than normal level and the possibility of a health issue.

The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.

Science

Prostate cancer represents a big problem worldwide since it can cause death in affected men, and treatment options for prostate cancer can be dangerous and really expensive.

Around 15% of men around the world suffer from prostate cancer. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is produced by prostate glandular and endothelial cells.

It is a single-chain glycoprotein with a molecular weight of approximatly 34 kDa (1). The PSA level in serum of healthy men is between 0.1 ng/mL and 2.6 ng/mL.

It can be elevated in malignant conditions such as prostate cancer and in benign conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatitis.

A PSA level of 3 to 10ng/ml is considered to be in the “grey-zone”, and levels above 10ng/ml are highly indicative of cancer (1) Patients with PSA values between 3-10ng/ml should undergo further analysis of the prostate by biopsy.

The prostate-specific antigen test is the most valuable tool available for the diagnosis of early prostate cancer. Many studies have confirmed that the presence of PSA is the most useful and meaningful tumour marker known for prostate cancer and prostate infection of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) (2).
