PSA - prostate-specific antigen – is a protein produced mainly by the cells in the prostate. It can be a useful indicator of prostate cancer. PSA is found in low amounts in all males.
The PSA test is for men only. It measures the levels of PSA in the blood. Should this test be positive, we can guide men (Stockholm only) to further testing in the public sector.
Please note, Socialstyrelsen does not recommend testing PSA routinely as they are concerned that it may lead to unnecessary treatments.
