The test is much more sensitive than current methods, picking up how aggressive the disease is and at what point men will need treatment. The test is designed for men who are suspected of having prostate cancer, as well as those already diagnosed with low risk disease who are on a “watch and wait” approach known as active surveillance. For men suspected of having prostate cancer, the test can work out which men have aggressive or intermediate levels of disease, and can rule out those without cancer. This cuts down the need for a barrage of tests, including blood tests, a physical examination known as a digital rectal examination (DRE), an MRI scan or a biopsy. Meanwhile, for men already on active surveillance, the test could cut … [Read more...] about New urine test for prostate cancer ‘has enormous potential’
