The PSA test stands for Prostate-Specific Antigen test. It checks a blood sample for the level of PSA, a substance produced by the prostate gland. If the PSA test detects a higher than normal value (above 4.0ng/ml) it may indicate prostate infection, enlargement of the prostate gland, or cancer

If you suffer from palpitations then you will require either a 24/48/72/144 hours ambulatory ECG or a cardiac Event monitor for either one –two weeks depending on how frequent and what type of symptoms for the palpitations you have.

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced primarily by cells in the prostate, a small gland that encircles the urethra in males and produces a fluid that makes up part of semen Most of the PSA that the prostate produces is released into this fluid, but small amounts of it are also released into the bloodstream. This test measures the amount of PSA in the blood.
