After prostate cancer diagnosis to monitor and help with treatment; although, if you are a high risk patient - male in his 50s, African American, or have a family history of prostate cancer - you may consider getting tested regularly in order to establish a "baseline" of results. By understanding your PSA levels, you can manage your own health to see if they change over time.
