Product Information

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer.

This rate increases if:

  • If you are over 50
  • Are black
  • Your dad or brother had prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. But when it is, the earlier it’s detected the more likely it is to be treated effectively. Early detection can lead to successful positive treatment. Not talking about men's health can affect family, social and work relationships.

This test checks the levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). A high PSA can show problems with the prostate gland. Men can use the results from this blood test to start a conversation with their doctor. Creating an effective personalised treatment plan is a man's first step in taking back control of their life. 

What to expect from this test?

A PSA test cannot diagnose prostate cancer or exclude the presence of prostate cancer. If PSA levels are high, further investigations with a Urologist is advisable. If PSA levels are low and there are symptoms a visit to a doctor is recommended.  

What does this test identify?

This test identifies three biomarkers:

  • Total Specific Antigen - the amount of prostate-specific antigen produced by the cells in the prostate.
  • Free Prostate Specific Antigen – produced in the prostate gland cells. They are free proteins that are not bound to any proteins in the blood.
  • Free: Total PSA Ratio - a calculation indicating the amount of free prostate specific antigen in the body in terms of the total amount of prostate specific antigen.

How does the test process work?

We will send you a home-based test kit, which includes all the instructions on how to do the test. Simply return the sample.  Pre-paid return postage is included in the test kit. Doctor-validated results are emailed to you via a secure link.

Should your organisation wish to facilitate PSA testing to help improve men’s health, Covguard can assist with a bespoke solution. To set up a testing day in your organisation email or phone 02081 547916.


It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor. Especially if feeling unwell. Do not make a diagnosis or start any treatment. First, consult a doctor or a trained healthcare professional. Results need to be assessed within the context of a full medical history.
