Prostate self Test

We recommend all men from age 45 to take PSA test once a year. Early detection of prostate problems is vital for early treatment.


Worried on prostate problems? You can also test yourself for other cancer diseases with our Home Cancert Kit for man.


1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer. Men whose father or brother were affected by prostate cancer are at slightly increased risk themselves. Recent research also suggests that obesity increases the risk of prostate cancer.


Prostate self test is a quick, simple and accurate home-test, that helps men to assess whether their prostate gland is healthy.


For many men with prostate cancer, treatment is not immediately necessary.


If the cancer is at an early stage and not causing symptoms, your doctor may suggest either "watchful waiting" or "active surveillance". The best option depends on your age and overall health. Both options involve carefully monitoring your condition.


Some cases of prostate cancer can be cured if treated in the early stages. Some cases are only diagnosed at a later stage, when the cancer has spread. If the cancer spreads to other parts of the body and can't be cured, then treatment is focused on prolonging life and relieving symptoms.

Additional Information

Additional Information

To whom?

 

All 45-75 years old men should be tested on prostate at least once a year, or test yourself if you can answer YES to the following:

- if you have pain or discomfort in between rectum and the testicles, in testicles, penis, lower abdomen;

- groin or lower back;

- painful ejaculation;

- painful urination, frequent urination (including at night), intermittent, or weak urinary stream;

- your close relatives have been diagnosed with prostate or breast cancer.

 

Symptoms of prostate cancer do not usually appear until the prostate is large enough to affect the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the penis (urethra) therefore its important to test your prostate before you starting totice significant symptoms.

Some of symptoms that should not be ignored, but they do not mean you have prostate cancer: an increased need to pee; straining while you pee; a feeling that your bladder has not fully emptied.

 

 

 

Method

 

You can take the Prostate self test comfortably, quickly and painlessly. You receive an answer in 10 minutes, and you do not have to visit your doctor, or send your results to a laboratory.

What does the PROSTATE self test shows?

Prostate home rapid test determines whether prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in your blood are normal or higher than average. PSA is a protein, which is only produced by the prostate, but part of it may enter the blood stream. This is how the blood test can assess the physiological condition of your prostate. Results from prostate rapid test that are higher than normal (over 4 ng / ml), determines whether the prostate is benign or contains a malignant growth. 

Does it mean cancer if the reading is higher than normal?

No. PSA levels rise in the blood does not always mean that a man has cancer. If a PSA test is high to very high then it could indicate whether the PSA level is above average (> 20 ng / ml). If the level has risen only moderately, other possible diseases or factors should be taken into account causing a PSA rise. In most cases, the cause could be benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostatitis. 

Why do I have to take the test each year?

It is very important to monitor the change in your PSA value throughout the year. The faster rise in your PSA levels, the more likely it is caused by a malignant tumour. The fact that prostate cancer cells release into the blood stream many times more PSA than in the entire prostate makes the PSA test extremely valuable. Hence, the PSA test can be successfully used in an early diagnosis of prostate cancer. 

What should I do if the test indicates rise of PSA level, or compared to the last year a change has occurred?

Please speak to your doctor for advice.
