The only way to determine your Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) level is to have it measured.
A PSA test is a blood test used to measure the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate, a small gland that sits below the bladder in males.
Small amounts of PSA ordinarily circulate in the blood. The PSA test can detect high levels of PSA that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. However, many other conditions, such as an enlarged or inflamed prostate, also can increase PSA levels.
Determining what a high PSA score means can be complicated so if your PSA level is above a "normal" level, discuss the issue with your doctor.
