PCA3

PSA levels are not specific for prostate cancer and some cancers in patients with normal PSA levels can go undetected. Serum PSA levels can be influenced by several factors such as the amount of BPH tissue, age, inflammation, and medications whereas PCA3 scores are not affected by these factors. The urinary PCA3 test is a new cancer marker test with greater prostate cancer specificity than PSA testing.
