When do I get my results?

Within 1 week of the test, you will receive your results letter. Should you have an abnormal test result, you may be eligible for referral to a private consultant or to the NHS via your GP. We telephone everyone with an abnormal test in advance to explain the available options and reduce any anxiety.

PSA Blood Test Aims

The aim of the PSA blood test is to find out whether your PSA level is above what would be considered normal. A raised PSA level may indicate you have prostate cancer BUT it can also be raised if you are suffering from other non-cancerous conditions such as prostatitis (an infection of the prostate), enlarged prostate (sometimes referred to as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH and a normal part of ageing) or even a urinary infection.

PSA test advice

If you choose to have a PSA test, it is very important to follow the guidelines below otherwise your results will not be accurate:

  1. No ejaculation or strenuous exercise up to 48 hours before taking your sample
  2. Please do not ride a bicycle on the day that you take your sample
  3. Please do not eat oily or heavy food on the day that you take your sample
  4. Please drink plenty of fluids in the hours up to the time that you take your sample

After your PSA test

Our team of specialists will analyse your PSA test results and risk factors to determine what the next stage is for you. 

If your PSA test is normal, there should be no further action required. It should be noted however that there is a small chance (approximately 15%) of cancer being being present but going undetected. With your results you will receive a risk-stratified screening progamme.

If your PSA test reveals that your PSA levels are slightly raised, we will advise you to have a repeat test in approximately 6 weeks time.

If your PSA test levels are found to be abnormally high we will advise you on the next steps. Remember, a raised PSA level does not always mean that you have prostate cancer, raised levels do however need to be investigated.
