What is Prostate - Specific Antigen (Total) (PSA) test?
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), a protein produced by prostate gland cells, circulates through the body in two ways: either bound to other proteins or on its own. Total PSA is a useful screening method that is ordered when there is a swelling of the prostate gland (prostatic swelling). This test when taken with the Digital Rectal Examination (DRE) is more accurate in predicting prostate cancer.
Why get the Prostate - Specific Antigen (Total) (PSA) test?
The total PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test is administered to those who show swelling of the prostate gland and helps to rule out the risk of prostate cancer. This is not a confirmatory test for prostate cancer. PSA level might be high in many non-cancerous conditions, so do consult your doctor before taking this test.

What our customers say about us
I normally have an issue with my veins as they are very thin but the technician was experienced and the sample came out in one shot at the first attempt, which really reassured me.
The pickup was done extremely nicely. Got a message when the person started , no calls for directions and most of all extremely polite representative.
Got my one year old tested. Very professional and safe. Using sealed sample kits with needles, tubes and gloves pre-packed.
