Summary

Table of Contents

Prostrate Specific Antigen is secreted by epithelial prostatic cells. The primary function of PSA is to break down high molecular weight protein of the seminal coagulum into smaller polypeptides. The PSA is present in serum which is used to detect prostate cancer. There is a continuous circulation of PSA in the blood.

The PSA testing is gaining popularity among clinicians and hospitals as the number of people affected by prostate cancer in the age bracket of 40-50 years is on a rise. A high level of PSA is an indicator of possible prostate cancer. However, there are other physical conditions which might lead to an increase in PSA levels.

The number of people affected by prostate cancer in 2014 was 233,000 from 417,000 in 2012. The reason for this sharp decline in prostate cancer incidences is due to effective PSA testing. The global PSA testing market was close to $250 million in 2014. The population in the age bracket of 50-64 years are more likely to develop prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer is the fourth most common cancer. The need for PSA testing has seen an upward surge. The North America region is going to see the highest increase due to better focus on healthcare. The Europe region has different guidelines and policies for PSA testing in different countries. Such scenario has led to a decreased use of PSA testing in Europe region.
