The PSA-free (Prostate Specific Antigen) test analyzes the proportion of unbound PSA in the blood. PSA is a protein produced by the body in the prostate gland, part of the male reproductive system. For individuals with elevated PSA (Total) values, the PSA (Free) Test is used to determine whether a prostate biopsy is necessary. They can bind to another protein (bound PSA) or float freely (Free or unbound PSA). PSA levels can be raised by prostate cancer, but so can other disorders such as an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, and increasing age. This Prostate-Specific Antigen test Seemapuri does not require fasting. There are different PSA forms, including total and free PSA. Ejaculation (whether during intercourse or masturbation) must be avoided for 24 hours before the PSA free Test Seemapuri. Higher total PSA levels and a smaller percentage of free PSA are linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer. PSA levels can be raised by prostate cancer, but so can other disorders such as an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, and increasing age
There is no danger in performing the test. However, this test requires a needle prick to get a blood sample.
Total and free PSA levels rise shortly after ejaculation, with varying recovery rates to baseline.
PSA levels less than 4 ng/ml are considered normal, whereas levels higher than 4 ng/ml are deemed abnormal.
