Tips and comments

Remember about this test that it does not confirm predominateprostate cancer but the deranged levels signify the requirement of further investigations in other words it provides a clue to the problem of prostate.
One may also get a XRAY, C.T SCAN MRI scan of pelvis, (the part of body where prostate lies) and so predominate symptoms are well recognized in that area. A BONE scan (scintigraphy) is done in case of predominate symptom of bone pain, and it involves injecting a radioisotope (a dye that emits a small amount of radiation) into the bloodstream through a drip in the hand or arm. The dye travels around the body and will accumulate in any bony areas affected by the cancer. Any deposits can then be detected with a specialized scanning machine. A strong family history is also a major predominate symptom of prostate cancer, in that case one is already better aware of the symptoms and signs and treatment options.
