  • A Simple Blood Test for Better Prostate Cancer Detection
    A Simple Blood Test for Better Prostate Cancer Detection Dr. Vernon Mustoe Recorded: Oct 5 2016 59 mins
    Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. Fortunately, it can be detected early by monitoring PSA levels. However, PSA tests have limited specificity for cancer, resulting in numerous unnecessary biopsies each year, which creates the need for a more precise test to help with prostate cancer detection. In this webinar, Dr. Vernon Mustoe will discuss how a simple blood test can help provide more accurate information on what an elevated PSA level might mean and the probability of finding prostate cancer on biopsy.
