PSA Test Saves Patient’s Life
A visit to his regular doctor began a healthcare journey for Steven Richards that he’s still on today — with optimism.
Steven Richards is living proof that regular testing for prostate cancer saves lives.
A retired poker dealer, Steven lived in both Reno and Las Vegas for the past 20 years before settling two years ago in Cold Springs. About a year ago he went in for a routine checkup, including a simple blood test to measure the concentration of prostate-specific antigens (PSA) in his blood. The PSA blood test is a strong indicator of risk for prostate cancer.
The test results were not encouraging. Steven’s PSA levels were high — 28. His doctor referred him to a specialist for further testing, and blood samples from his prostate revealed that Steven had stage IIB prostate cancer.
Fortunately the cancer had not yet spread to other parts of his body. Steven’s care team, which included urology experts and employees at the Renown Institute for Cancer, acted quickly. They began with low dose rate brachytherapy, available at Renown Institute for Cancer.
