Andrew asked...

Annual cardiac check-up

I gave a blood sample in August for my annual cardiac check-up. Does this show up any problems with my prostate or do I need to have a PSA for this?

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

You are quite right that cardiac screening does not include a Prostate check and you are right to ask if you should have a PSA level checked for this. If you would like your PSA tested then it would be sensible to have a chat with your GP and ask for this to be performed.
