About Our Male Cancer Screening Tests
The Male Cancer Screening provides indicators for the common cancers that affect men.
Common male cancers include: Cancer of the prostate, testes, large intestine (colon and rectal), stomach, pancreas, liver, and breast.
Our Male Cancer screening includes the following tests and panels:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Comprehensive urinalysis
- Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
- Prostatic Acid Phosphatase (PAP)
- Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA)
- Cancer Antigen (CA) 27.29
- Carbohydrate Antigen (CA) 19-9
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) with differential and platelets test helps to give an overall view of general health and screens for a broad scope of diseases and conditions. This test includes testing for 10 kinds of cells and cell molecules in the blood:
- Hematocrit - The amount of red blood cells in the blood.
- Hemoglobin - A protein that transports oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - Measures the average volume of red blood cells in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The amount of hemoglobin per red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - The amount of hemoglobin concentrated in a given volume of red blood cells.
- Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the difference of red blood cell size or volume in blood sample.
- Percentage and Absolute Differential Counts - Measures the amounts of different white blood cell types within the blood.
- Platelet Count - Measures the amount of platelets (fragments and particles of cells) in the blood that are crucial for blood clotting.
- Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) - Measures the amounts of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body.
- White Blood Cell Count (WBC) - Measures the amount of white blood cells in the blood. White blood cells defend the body against infections and foreign bodies.
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The 14 measurements included in the CMP help to provide a look at the overall health of the body and its metabolism and chemical balance, and can help diagnose certain conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease and hypertension. The CMP aids in determining how the liver and kidneys are functioning and where glucose, calcium, protein, sodium, potassium, and chloride levels stand.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
- Total bilirubin
- Total protein
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
- Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
Our Urinalysis with macro and microscopic examination is a 12-panel test that examines a urine sample and analyzes numerous levels and elements within the urine including:
- The urine sample's color
- Specific gravity
- Protein levels
- Occult blood
- Leukocyte esterase
A urinalysis is important in accessing the chemical constituents in the urine and the relationship to various disease states. Microscopic examination helps to detect the presence of abnormal urine cells and formed elements. A urinalysis can detect abnormalities of urine; help diagnose and manage renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
The Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test measures PSA levels, and is used as a tumor marker for the early detection of prostate cancer and in other areas of prostate disease management.
The Prostatic Acid Phosphatase (PAP) test measures levels of PAP, and has been used as a cancer tumor marker ever since the late 1930s after elevated levels of this enzyme were found in patients with metastatic prostate cancer.
The Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) test measures levels of CEA. CEA is associated with certain kinds of cancers, especially large intestine cancers like colon and rectal cancer. Increased CEA levels may also be present in cancer of the lung, breast, ovary or pancreas.
The Cancer Antigen 27.29 test measures levels of Cancer Antigen 27.29 (CA 27.29) is a breast cancer associated antigen; this test is the only blood test specific for breast cancer. CA 27.29 is used as a tumor marker for breast cancer and is helpful in monitoring treatment.
The Cancer Antigen 19-9 test measures levels of Cancer Antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) and is used as a tumor marker in the detection of pancreatic or gastrointestinal cancer.
Fasting is required for the blood glucose test that is included in the CMP. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverages other than water for at least 8 hours before testing.
