Prostate assessments can find out whether you might have prostate cancer or another prostate problem, such as an enlarged prostate or prostatitis. You might hear these tests being called a prostate screening test or exam. Such tests include a PSA test, PCA3 test, Multiple Parametric MRI (mpMRI) and biopsies.
If there is a concern, a biopsy will be required. This involves taking a sample piece of tissue in order to examine the area more closely. Blood tests may also be necessary.
If there is an abnormality and the biopsy results come back positive for Prostate Cancer, you will be referred onto our specialist oncology service. You will be advised of the choices of treatment available to you and you will be given time to think over your options.
