How Often Will My PSA Be Checked After Surgery?

Question: How often will my PSA be checked after surgery?

Answer: The PSA is a test which is required to be checked after a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. And this test is performed as per the NCCN guidelines within one month or four to six weeks after surgery the first PSA test is performed, and after that, every three months. And once you progress in your course of the disease, the PSA can be measured every three months or every six months or once a year depending upon the disease and the status of the PSA.
