Frequently Asked Questions

How does a PSA test work for prostate cancer?

A prostate-specific antigen (PSA) ratio screening test measures the total PSA level and free PSA levels in the blood. The percentage of measured free PSA is useful in assessing the risk of prostate cancer in patients with borderline or moderately increased total PSA.

Do you need a biopsy after a free PSA test?

Free PSA vs. biopsy. On average, free PSA testing can reduce the need for 20 percent of unnecessary biopsies. It also can help determine if there’s a greater likelihood you have prostate cancer. If your results suggest that you may have prostate cancer, you’ll still need a biopsy to confirm the prostate cancer diagnosis.

Are there any alternatives to the PSA test?

The good news is that science has responded to this quandary by developing new and better alternatives to PSA for prostate cancer screening. Yes, there are now “biomarker” tests available that aim to reduce unnecessary prostate biopsies.

Which is better Phi or PSA for prostate cancer?

The PHI is a simple blood test that combines three tests in one. Research has shown that the test is better at detecting prostate cancer than the traditional PSA screening. 5 The test also predicts the likelihood of progression during active surveillance. Because this test is very new, it is possible your physician has not heard of it yet.
