Description

PSA and Total Test are essential blood tests used to assess an individual’s health. These tests measure the level of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) and Total Testosterone in the blood. PSA is a protein that is secreted by the prostate and is mostly found in semen but is also produced in small amounts by the blood. Elevated levels of PSA are sometimes seen in patients with cancer of the prostate, an enlarged prostate, or bacterial prostatitis. Total Testosterone is the sum of all of the different forms of testosterone circulating in a person’s bloodstream. High levels of testosterone can be seen in people with certain medical conditions, including polycystic ovarian syndrome, but can also seen in certain medication use, or steroids. Low levels of testosterone can also occur in people with hypogonadism, or low functioning of the testes. Knowing the level of testosterone is essential in diagnosing someone with the potential of being a candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
