Elevated PSA Or Abnormal Prostate Exam

Providing timely and convenient access to the highest possible urologic care available.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men. The good news is that the majority of prostate cancers are relatively slow growing and do not require invasive treatments. Some prostate cancers, however, can be more serious and are important to be identified early. Because of this, the PSA blood test and prostate exam remain important mainstays for screening of prostate cancer in men. Screening for prostate cancer typically begins around the age of 55 and continues until the age of 70 or so, but is always tailored to each individual patient. Initial screening blood tests and exams are typically performed by your primary care doctor. If the blood test or the exam is abnormal, Dr. Gibson might suggest continued surveillance, imaging of your prostate or possibly a biopsy of your prostate.
