Prostate Biopsy - Glossary

Font : A-A+

Glossary

Prostate Specific Antigen:Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a 34 kd glycoprotein located in the prostate. A PSA test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen in the blood. Low amounts of PSA may be found in the blood of healthy men. The amount of PSA in the blood normally increases as a man's prostate enlarges with age. It is also increased by inflammation of the prostate gland and by prostate cancer.

Well I won't be doing that again! Had transrectal prostate biopsy on Monday, by Wed evening was in hospital with blood infection and also severely painful infection in right testicle. Took three days of antibiotics to get rid of the infection and fever, but I'm told the testicle [swollen to three times normal] will take weeks to return to normal size. No one saying anything about whether it will still work or not. Lovely.
