Early diagnosis of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is the most frequent malignancy in men, together with lung. It is a treatable disease which, if caught in time, is unlikely to have a fatal outcome.
From this premise we understand the importance of early diagnosis.
From this premise we understand the importance of the current methodologies used in the diagnosis of prostate cancer have improved a lot in the last three decades: a of early diagnosis.
- The PSA is a blood test that can be elevated in the presence of prostate cancer but not only because it can also rise for acute or chronic prostate infections and negative values sometimes do not exclude the existence of a tumor.
- Transrectal prostate ultrasound allows the identification of doubtful lesions of a neoplastic or inflammatory type.
- Traditional rectal examination is not a very effective screening tool; by probing with a finger, only a part of the gland can be accessed, thus not being able to perceive some neoplasms (especially those located anteriorly). And in some cases the tumor has to grow a lot before it can be felt with rectal examination and often the disease is at an advanced stage.
- Multiparametric MRI allows you to further discern suspicious areas on ultrasound. MRI of the prostate is very detailed in the information it provides in soft tissue, such as the prostate gland.
Following these evaluations, the urologist will be able to suspect or exclude the presence of any prostate cancer that can be diagnosed by a prostate biopsy.
At this point it is possible to carry out biopsies exactly in the suspicious areas detected by the magnetic resonance (fusion technique or, if carried out by expert hands, also the cognitive biopsy).
