New urine test for prostate cancer Prostate cancer is a great offence amongst men; it is one of the most common cancers amongst the male sex. Blood tests were, up to now, the most reliable check. They measured the levels of a protein called prostate antigen or PSA but quite often the results were wrong and men were subjected to unnecessary processes. http://www.inmonova.com/blog/new-urine-test-for-prostate-cancer/
The PSA is a protein produced by the prostate gland and normal range is within 0-4 ng/mL. For men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, the range of PSA may run between 4-8 ng/mL. Men with prostate cancer may have more than 10ng/mL level of PSA. Men should be tested for PSA when there is a noticeable increase in voiding frequency. Troubles in starting and stopping urine flow, blood in urine and back pain when urinating are other symptoms indicative for a PSA test.
