Prostate Antigen PSA

It is a test (Prostate Antigen PSA) that belongs to the markers of neoplasia. These substances at some level are produced by normal body cells. When "new" cells appear, then their most intense metabolism produces these substances at increased levels.

Young cells can be a result of:

  1. tissue regeneration after some destruction - inflammation
  2. development of new pathologically differentiated tissue or non-pathologically differentiated tissue

Its use is suggested for prostate cancer
