PSA stands for prostate specific androgen and is a protein that is secreted solely by the prostate, a small organ located below the bladder. A PSA blood test may be checked by your urologist or primary physician as part of a normal yearly check-up or if your physician is concerned that you might have a problem with your prostate. In addition, the PSA test is one way that men are evaluated for possible cancer that can develop in the prostate.
