Prostate cancer is the second cause of cancer death found in men in the United States. The incidence increases with age and about 80% of the men over age 65 are diagnosed with prostate cancer. The prostate is a gland in a Man's reproductive system, which makes and stores seminal fluid (milky fluid that nourishes sperm). The normal size of a prostate is about the size of a walnut and it is located below the bladder and surrounds the top portion of the urethra, the tube that drains urine from the bladder. The seminal fluid is then released through the penis druing ejaculation.

If prostate cancer is detected early, there is a better chance of successful treatment and prevention of cancer spreading to the other places. There are two common tests physicians use to screen and detect prostate cancer, even if there are no present symptoms. The tests are a Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) and Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test. For the PSA test, the laboratory measures the levels of PSA enzyme in a blood sample. The level of PSA may rise in men who have prostate cancer, BPH, or infection in the prostate. The PSA test is limited in its ability to distinguish between a benign and cancerous tumor and other conditions, such as prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate).

According to the American Cancer Society and the American Urological Association, and annual DRE and PSA blood test should be done beginning at age 50. The ZRT Blood spot test kit provides you with an accurate and inexpensive way to discover your own PSA level.
