What is a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) Test?

At some point in their life, almost every man will suffer from prostate problems, and one of the most common prostate problems is BPH. Enlargement of the prostate means that the prostate gland gets bigger, causing a blockage of the urine flow. Since the prostate is located just below the bladder and surrounding the urethra, its enlargement can restrict the flow of urine from the bladder.
