This test measures a key biomarker linked to prostate cancer

A PSA marker, or Prostate-Specific Antigen, is the biomarker we screen for in this test. PSA is a measurable indicator of the amount of protein created by cancerous and non-cancerous tissue in the prostate. We measure Total PSA, which acts as the first level of screening for prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer symptoms should you look out for

Prostate cancer symptoms vary by person, and it’s possible to experience no symptoms whatsoever during early stages. However, these common symptoms are strong indicators that you should get tested:

Erectile dysfunction

Decreased force in stream of urine

Blood in semen

Trouble urinating

*If you are experiencing heart attack symptoms, please see a doctor immediately.

What is prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate — a small walnut-shaped gland in men. This is the gland that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men, and is generally slow-growing and silent - which is why it is of the utmost importance to catch early¹.

Who is at risk?

Certain factors such as age, race, and family history can increase your risk for the disease. Men are at greater risk the older they get — and it’s most commonly diagnosed after age 50².

African American men are at an especially high risk, and more than twice as likely to die from prostate cancer than other races³. A strong family history or genetic predisposition to prostate cancer or breast cancer can also increase your risk⁴⁻⁵. Other health risk factors such as obesity can also affect the advancement and aggression of the cancer⁶⁻⁸.

What’s the benefit of early testing?

Some prostate cancers are slow-moving while others are aggressive, and in both scenarios identifying the cancer as early as possible is key⁹⁻¹⁰. Surgery is a treatment choice for men with early-stage prostate cancer who are in good health. Surgery to remove the prostate is called prostatectomy, but prior to the surgery, it is often necessary to have a prostate biopsy¹¹.

Prostate Cancer Screening Test FAQ's

What happens if my PSA levels are high?

If your test shows a high PSA level, we recommend you use your results to engage a physician for further diagnosis. Your physician may review family history, your PSA history, and evaluate you for biopsy before exploring treatment options if necessary. For more information about diagnosis and treatment techniques for prostate cancer, visit our partners at Halo Diagnostics to learn more about multiparametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) and laser focal therapy.

What will my results tell me?

If you’ve never had a PSA test before, it will provide you with a baseline total PSA level. You’ll use this level initially to understand your likelihood of potential prostate cancer — but you can also use this test to compare your PSA level year-over-year to understand the health of your prostate. If your test flags a high PSA level, your physician can pursue further diagnostic testing if needed.

Who should take this test?

Any male over the age of 40 should establish a baseline PSA level and be regularly screened for prostate cancer. Based on your baseline PSA level and risk factors such as age, race, and family history, you might have to be re-tested annually, while others can wait years between screenings. Men are at greater risk if they:

  • Have a family history of prostate cancer
  • Are of black ethnic origin
  • Are overweight or obese
  • Are over 50 years of age

Who can order an imaware™ test?

This test is only for adults aged 18 and older. Unfortunately, this test is not available in the state of New York due to state regulations.

Can my doctor use imaware™ results?

Yes. All of our tests are performed by CLIA-certified labs, the gold standard in lab testing quality regulation. Within your results report you will also find detailed information intended for your healthcare professional. They can use this information to interpret your test results clearly. To see an example of this, you can request a sample report at the top of this page.

How should I prepare for this test?

There is no need to fast before this test. You must abstain from sexual activity (with yourself or a partner) for 48 hours before the test for accurate results with the PSA prostate health biomarker. You’ll need to take the test in the morning, as that’s when hormone levels are optimal. In order to have the most accurate PSA levels, you should avoid heavy exercise and review your medications before taking a PSA test. Learn more about preparing for a PSA blood test.

Are imaware™ results as accurate as traditional lab test?

Yes. Not only are your results as accurate as traditional lab tests, but we’re actually the first at-home small volume blood testing company to have our data and methods peer-reviewed by the scientific and medical community — which helps validate our claims and our results reports. Learn more about the exact science behind imaware tests.
