Prostate Test 

 

Prostate tests are important in diagnosis of prostatitis, BPH and prostate cancer. PSA, prostate-specific antigen test, gleason score, digital rectal exam, blood tests and Chlamydia test are common prostate tests used in our surgery center.

 

PSA

PSA, prostate-specific antigen, is a prostate test for prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, benign prostatic hypertrophy, BPH, enlarged prostate, prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain in men.

A PSA test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood to detect prostate cancer. The prostate test is primarily used in detection of prostate cancer but is also used in diagnosis of prostatitis and bph. This is because detection of high PSA levels in PSA test may indicate not only presence of prostate cancer but also prostatitis, BPH, enlarged prostate. Therefore, PSA test is controversial in accurate detection of prostate cancer.

 

Gleason Score

Gleason score is a prostate test for prostate cancer. Gleason score or grade is used as a diagnosing tool to predict behavior of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer with high Gleason score has higher chance to show aggressive behavior and to spread outside the prostate to lymph nodes, therefore higher chance of death.

Gleason grade is currently the most popular prostate test in United States. Gleason score help patients with prostate cancer to decide best treatment options based on studies.

 

Chlamydia Test

Chlamydia test is a blood test which helps diagnosis of prostatitis, pelvic inflammatory disease and sexually transmitted diseases. When Chlamydia trachomatis is found in Chlamydia test, antibiotics such as azithromycin is selected to use in prostatectomy, TURP surgery and other prostate surgery and urethra perfusion.

 

Prostate Test

If your doctor still use urine test to diagnose your prostatitis, you should not continue the treatment as urine test is almost useless in detection of bacteria infection in the prostate.

We provide patients with specialized and accurate testing kits for prostate infection, prostate cancer, bph, PID and STD. Since there are a vast variety of bacteria infections that can cause prostate infection, it is necessary that people get tested by a specialized laboratory.
