PROSTA Check Test
At-home prostate function test
In men, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is produced by the prostate. This gland is located in the abdominal area under the bladder, it surrounds the urethra and it plays a vital role for the seminal fluid. The PSA level provides information about the condition of the prostate. Therefore, an elevated PSA level might indicate pathologies of the prostate (benign hyperplasia, prostatitis, cancer, etc.). PSA testing can be done at least once a year in men who are more than 50 years old or who have a family history of prostate problems.
Symptoms of prostate problems can vary, but the most common ones include:
Weak urine flow
Pain in the pelvis, genitals, lower back, and buttocks
Pain when urinating
Frequent need to urinate
Pain during ejaculation
Early diagnosis in case of prostate-related diseases can mean a better chance for treatment.
