MUMS offer the PSA test to help in diagnosing cancer of the prostate. Measuring PSA – Prostate Specific Antigen in your blood reveals your PSA levels.
PSA is a protein made only by the prostate gland. Some of it leaks into your blood, but how much depends on your age and the health of your prostate.
There is no approved Prostate cancer screening programme currently, but Prostate cancer UK does recommend the following:
1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. If you're , black, or your dad or brother had prostate cancer, then you're at even higher risk. Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. The earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured. If you are in this age group and may or may not have urinary symptoms, then seeing a consultant urologist with adequate counselling, a simple PSA blood test can be very re-assuring."
Men aged 50 and over can get a free of charge PSA Test with their NHS GP Practice if they wish to understand their levels of PSA and risk of prostate cancer.
Mr Dev Sarmah offers a one stop prostate assessment service which includes a consultation with physical examination, urine dipstick, IPSS symptom score, Flow rate measurement in combination with real time ultrasound assessment and recommendation. The expected outcome from this service would be reassurance with fluid management, medical treatment for BPH (Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy), Urodynamic studies (bladder pressure studies ) or recommendation for Prostate surgery.
The PSA test costs £120.00
Results are back in a few days.
We offer Complex PSA and a Prostate Profile which includes Total and Free PSA.
If you are not sure which PSA test to have, we recommend a GP Consultation in which to have the test. A GP Consultation cost £100.00. If you choose a GP consultation, then you will be followed up free of charge.
You may also decide to consult with our Consultant Urologist in the first instance and have the test with the consultant – Mr Dev Sarmah who works at MUMS on Thursdays. Consultations with Mr Sarmah cost £230.00 which include a free of charge telephone call to have the results explained to you.
You may decide you simply want to know your levels and receive the results via email. In which case you can have a simple phlebotomy appointment for the PSA Test – which costs £30.00 + £120.00 for the PSA Test. If the results are abnormal you will need to see our GP or Urology Consultant to review the results.
You have a higher risk of prostate cancer if you:
We measure the amount of PSA in your blood. Men aged 50-69 years old who have a PSA which is 3ng or higher need further investigations.
A PSA level which is raised could indicate prostate cancer. However – it could be attributed to an enlarged prostate, inflammation or even a urine infection.
If you have been experiencing bladder discomfort, urinating more frequently than normal, or are not producing your normal flow of urine when going to the toilet you should consider the simple PSA blood test.
About 3 in 4 men with a raised PSA level will not have cancer.
The benefits of having a simple prostate test are – reassurance, early detection, and risk reduction.
If you decide to have this test which costs £120 for the complex PSA or £120.00 for Total and Free PSA you should refrain from ejaculation 48 hours before the test, exercise and be free from infections such as a urine infection.
If you're a man aged 50 or over and decide to have your PSA levels tested, you can have this at MUMS.
