Many: urologist potentially could order many different types of blood test depending on the type of disorder there a valuating or treating. The PSA blood test is probably the one test that is identified with urology specifically. This is screening test to assess men's risk of prostate cancer. it is also used to evaluate prostate cancer once it is diagnosed and treated
