关爱中、老年健康:免费前列腺特性抗原检查 +血液检查

前列腺是男性生殖器官的一部分。它如核桃般大小,位于膀胱下部,直肠前方的腺体。前列腺在男性生殖能力中起重要作用,其主要功能是产生形成精液部分的液体。大多数时候,前列腺问题会影响男性的排尿和性功能。 常见的三种前列腺问题包括: 前列腺炎(前列腺受感染或发炎),良性前列腺增生(因老化而导致前列腺体积增大)和前列腺癌(癌细胞在前列腺内生长)。大多数这些问题可以通过前列腺特异性抗原(PSA)检测来检测。 前列腺特异性抗原(PSA)是前列腺产生的蛋白质。PSA检测是测量血液中前列腺特异性抗原(PSA)的水平。PSA检测是一种简单的血液检测,在对侧手臂部位采血。血液中的PSA水平升高可能与癌性和非癌性病症:如良性前列腺肥大,尿路感染,前列腺炎症或前列腺癌有关。如果PSA值偏高,则须进行更多的检测,例如活检以确定患者是否患有癌症。 在马来西亚,前列腺癌是男性第四大常见的癌症,特别是50岁及以上的男性。前列腺癌通常没有早期症状。这就是为什么进行常规的前列腺特异性抗原(PSA)检测很重要,因为它有助于检测早期的前列腺癌。美国泌尿协会建议年龄介于55至69岁的男性应进行常规的前列腺特异性抗原(PSA)检测,同时,该协会也鼓励拥有前列腺癌家族史的男性提早在45岁就进行常规的PSA检测。 由于感到尴尬和不愿显示自己弱势,一些男士选择逃避进行检测。然而,如果您遇到以下症状,您应该咨询医生,因为它可能是前列腺问题症状: • 难以开始排尿 • 须用力排尿或排尿时间长 • 频繁排尿,特别是在晚上 • 排尿或性交时感到疼痛 • 尿液中带血 为了提高意识并鼓励男士进行PSA检查,宝康医院与星洲医识力合作发起了“关爱中、老年健康:免费前列腺特性抗原检查 +血液检查” 运动,提供免费的血液检查和PSA检查给55岁以上的男士。 报名从2017年10月9日开始。限于200人,先到先得。欲参加这个活动: • 须事先预约。请致电03 – 7620 7979 或 011 – 3432 1333(办公时间:周一至周五上午9时至下午5时) 报名预约,安排检验时间。 • 现场须出示星洲医识力的正版活动印花(报纸或电子报),复印无效。印花只限一人使用。 • 检验前12小时须禁食。检验后4小时即有报告。我们的医务人员将在同一天提供解说。 • 印花仅用于免费检验,不包括治疗。 • 欲了解更多和报名预约,请致电03 – 7620 7979 或 011 – 3432 1333(办公时间:周一至周五上午9时至下午5时)。
