SAMPLES NEEDED

Our Cancer Screening (M) test basically consists of Prostate specific antigen (PSA) and Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) tests. To perform this test you will need to visit your laboratory of choice for the collection of a blood sample. To avoid a false raise in your PSA level, do not do the following before the test:

  • participate in sexual activity that involves ejaculation for 48 hours before your test.
  • participate in vigorous exercise and activities that stimulate or “jostle” the prostate, e.g. bike riding, motorcycling, riding a horse, or tractor, or getting a prostatic massage for 48 hours before your test.
  • Schedule a digital rectal examination (DRE) before your PSA test. Having the PSA test first is preferred.
  • Schedule a PSA test if you have a urinary tract infection.


Disclaimer: Laboratory test results are NOT to be interpreted as a "stand-alone" item. Test results have to be interpreted after correlating with suitable clinical findings and additional supplemental information/tests. The meaning of your tests results will be explained by your healthcare providers, based on additional information you provide them.
