PSA Test Results and ED Pump Use

PSA tests or the prostate-specific antigen test is a blood test that checks the levels of a protein that is made by the prostate gland. Too high or too low levels of PSA can mean health problems that do not necessarily show other symptoms; therefore it is used as a diagnostic tool.

PSA test results can vary from lab to lab, so your doctor may want to run the test more than once to get a definitive conclusion. In order to have the prostate-specific antigen test, you will probably undergo the digital rectal exam as well since the two are done in conjunction. These tests are recommended for any man over the age of 50 as well as any male who has a history of prostate issues such as cancer. The PSA test can help detect cancer before any other symptoms are seen, and help with the treatment options for erectile dysfunction and impotence.

Erectile dysfunction and Impotence is considered the body’s inability to get or keep an erection for a period of time. Many men who experience these symptoms are diagnosed and then prescribed the use of penis pumps or ED pumps. ED pumps and penis pumps are the first treatment offered for ED, as they are not invasive and have no drug interactions or serious side effects. PSA levels can be integral in finding the cause of your ED, so the test should be run when your doctor diagnoses the ED.

PSA levels higher than a 4 see more cases of prostate cancer than those with PSA levels below a 4. However, there are no agreed upon normal levels for PSA. The doctor will take into consideration your current medical condition as well as your prior medical history to decide if your PSA level is high or low for you based on these variables.
