Prostate Cancer Screening

What is Prostate Cancer Screening?

Prostate cancer screening is done to look for signs of cancer early before it spreads. There are two main tests used to screen for prostate cancer, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) test, and digital rectal examination (DRE).

Prostate Specific Antigen Test

The PSA test is efficient for detecting early-stage prostate cancer, particularly in those with many risk factors. This is a blood test that measures the levels of PSA in the blood. Those with prostate cancer may have higher levels of PSA. However, because there are many factors that can affect PSA levels, it is important that a skilled physician interprets your PSA test results. If your PSA results are abnormal, your doctor may also recommend a biopsy to determine if you have prostate cancer.

Digital Rectal Examination

During a DRE, your physician will insert a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum to feel the surface of the prostate for any irregularities.

Highly Recommended

Met with Dr. Webb today for a second opinion on a surgical procedure and he was very thorough going over everything, answered my questions, explained options in great detail and even went over other health issues I was having that weren’t related. I never felt rushed or like my concerns weren’t important or valid. His staff was very welcoming as well! Highly recommend!

Trusted Experience

This was the best experience I have had at a Dr’s office in a very long. The office was friendly and efficient I was seen quickly. I feel like Dr. Webb really wants to help his patients stay on top of their health and well-being. I am so happy to have found a women’s clinic that I can trust and feel comfortable in.
