PSA, or prostate-specific antigen, is a protein produced by the prostate gland’s normal and malignant cells. The PSA test determines the amount of PSA in the blood. A blood sample is delivered to a laboratory to be analysed for this test.

TURBT is an abbreviation for transurethral resection of bladder tumours. It is a procedure that removes an early stage of bladder cancer. Your kidneys produce urine, which travels down the ureters into the bladder, where it is stored until you need to empty it through the urethra.

Nephrology is a subspecialty of internal medicine focusing on diagnosing and treating diseases affecting your kidneys’ function. There are numerous types of these diseases, many of which are related to hypertension or high blood pressure. Urology, also known as genitourinary surgery, is a specialty of medicine that concentrates on medical/surgical diseases of the urinary tract and reproductive organs.
