PSA Screening – Cancer Treatment at NJU

1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer

PSA Testing for Prostate Cancer at New Jersey Urology

Excluding skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. PSA screening is the best tool currently available for detecting prostate cancer. It is recommended that men age 40 and older who have a life expectancy of 10 years or greater undergo PSA screenings.

PSA testing provides valuable information in the diagnosis, pre-treatment staging, risk assessment, and monitoring of prostate cancer patients. PSA screening has resulted in detecting prostate cancer in its earliest and most curable stages, before it has a chance to spread and potentially become incurable. PSA screening has unequivocally reduced metastatic prostate cancer and death from prostate cancer.

Diagnosing Prostate Cancer

PSA tests are commonly used as a part of a comprehensive approach to early prostate cancer detection. You doctor may also recommend a Digital Rectal Exam as part of a screening process:

  • Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Test – The PSA test is a blood sample that is taken to analyze the levels of PSA in the bloodstream. If the level is high, it may be an indication that the prostate is inflamed, infected, enlarged or cancerous.
  • Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) – During a DRE, the physician will insert a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum to feel for any irregularities (e.g., change in shape, size or texture) in the prostate.

If an abnormality is detected on a DRE or a PSA test, additional testing is required to confirm a diagnosis. Tests may include a transrectal ultrasound—where a probe is inserted into the rectum—or taking a sample of prostate tissue (biopsy) using a thin needle.

Once a cancer diagnosis is confirmed, a physician will determine which stage the cancer is in and begin discussing treatment options.
