15-Minute PSA Results

Prostate-specific antigen is a protein found in small amounts in a healthy prostate, but can be elevated in the presence of prostate cancer. New technology allows us to test a patient’s PSA level and get the test result within 15 minutes.

The new test is possible because technological developments have brought costs down while also giving an analysis of just one drop of blood.

Having such a fast turnaround on test results makes it possible for doctor and patient to conduct the test and discuss the next step in one visit.
