PSA test

Recommended Posts

I know Ram do them but are there any other clinics?  walk in/walk out who can do the test?  any experiences?

Anywhere can, but you want to be sure the lab you choose is accredited (which many of the walk in/walk out labs are not). My urologist will not entertain any lab tests done at a lab which is not accredited.

Almost any hospital clinic or lab will offer the PSA blood test but as said, the lab to test the sample needs to be accredited.

Accredited by whom?

Do the independent clinics display the accreditation prominently?

The results page provided by the lab will show an accreditation reference number, in the case of CMU it is 4126/55.

By all means have the test but be aware of this, issued by the main US policy makers after years of study and debate

I just saw on the U.S. news about a week ago...the U.S. has reversed their opinion and has gone back to their original recommendation for men to get PSA tests regularly.

So I won't know beforehand if a lab is accredited?

If anyone knows a bit more about this accreditation then maybe I can look for it or even ask them.

Yes, they should be hanging on the wall when you first walk in. You can ask if you don't see them. But most of those small walk in clinics around the city are NOT accredited.
