Who should take the test?
Cancer of the prostate gland typically occurs in older patients. Prostate cancer is among the most commonly diagnosed malignancies in men and is the third leading cause of cancer-related death. It usually originates from the external prostate glands, grows slowly, and tends to metastasize (=subsidiary tumors in other parts of the body) to lymph nodes and bones. If diagnosed early, prostate cancer has a good chance of cure. Monitoring PSA levels can help diagnosing cancer early and therefore lead to a timely and appropriate treatment.
Preventive measures to minimize the risk of prostate cancer are recommend at about 45 years of age. If cases of prostate cancer have occurred in the family before, preventive tests are advisable at earlier stage in life (around 35).
How does it work?
You collect a dried blood spot sample from the comfort of your home, send it to our lab and will receive the lab results, including detailed information about your PSA level.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After the analysis was conducted, you will receive a lab report with explanations about the analyzed markers as well as information about possible symptoms that can occur when there is an imbalance. Further to that, we always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by writing an email to email@example.com.
