PSA Test-Home Prostate Cancer Screening
SKU #: H-PSA
PSA Tests are one of your first line of defenses in the early detection of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer found in men in the United States. It occurs in about 1 out of 10 men during their lifetime. Prostate cancer is more common in older men and is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men. An annual PSA Test is recommended for men over the age of 50.
The PSA Screening Test combines the convenience of a home sample collection with the accuracy of a certified clinical laboratory determination.
Since the risk for prostate cancer increases with age, it is recommended that PSA testing be performed annually for all men once they reach 50 years of age.
The PSA Test is accurate, private, convenient and easy-to-use. Everything is included, there are no extra charges.
This test should not be used by people who had their prostate removed.
The home PSA Test - the accuracy of a laboratory in the privacy of your home.
