I have no idea how long PSA tests remain good. But I can add this tidbit. It is possible to get PSA testing kits for 10 bucks. Once drawn that can be sent via snail mail to a center for analysis. Sounds like refrigeration does not matter.
But that stated. It takes less than one hour to run an assay STAT. Your test was delayed by priority. Not very nice?
