PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen. This is a protein that is made in the prostate and ensures that the semen liquefies. Although it was initially described as a substance specific to the prostate, it appears that it can also be secreted by other organs, such as the salivary and mammary glands. However, these glands only account for a maximum of 1% of all PSA production. The prostate is thus by far the most important organ in PSA production. A small amount of this protein leaks from the prostate into the blood, see image below. This amount can be measured with a PSA test.
