PSA testing (Prostate info.)
I guess this is an annual push to you all, only because I have my own blood test in January; this Monday, an annual event for me.
PSA, Prostate Specific Antigen, is a very simple test and a useful one for men over 40-50, and even younger, if they have had any prostate issues earlier in life or have a family history of prostate problems.
One reason why it is good to have one after a certain age, whether or not you have any issues, is that it gives you a base marker which you can compare with later reads as you age.
A tip: For three days prior to the blood take, don’t have sex or masturbate; even edge. All cause PSA from the prostate to rise and that will give you a “false” high read.
