One blood test will tell if your prostate is healthy.
It will distinguish benign prostate enlargement from oncological disease.

Using a reliable method for determining the correct diagnosis is important.
A standard prostate-specific antigen test (PSA) can be misrepresented for a variety of reasons. 3 out of 4 of all positive PSA tests are false positives, leading to the need for further examinations, including a prostate biopsy.
For this reason, new tests aimed at improving the diagnosis of prostate cancer have been put into practice, such as PHI – determination of the prostate health index or determination of the free-PSA (fPSA).
