Diagnostic services for raised Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)

Men who have raised Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) can be referred to this clinic. A certain amount of PSA is present in every man’s blood, and this can rise with age. A raised PSA, however, can sometimes indicate a sign of prostate cancer, but this is not always the case.

A urologist or urology specialist nurse will assess the patient in an initial triage, and then either offer a direct MRI scan of the prostate followed by a clinic consultation, or an initial clinic consultation with a urologist to further investigate causes for a raised PSA, and offer a range of tests and investigations.
