PSA level and the prostate

PSA is often the first thing a doctor mentions when informing a patient there is a suspicion that he has prostate cancer.

Although the PSA level is a valuable indicator, it is never a diagnosis. This begs the urgent question: “How likely is it that I have prostate cancer if my PSA level is increased?”. Here we would like to provide you with a tool to calculate the statistical probability. We recommend that you read the following information to be able to understand the PSA level and what it means.

PSA level is an indicator that has been in discussion for years. It can contribute to early detection of prostate cancer, but it also causes massive overdiagnosis and overtreatment with all of the consequences for patients and cost for health care providers.
