You May NEVER Need a Prostate Biopsy Again

Did you know that more than 75 percent of prostate biopsies are completely unnecessary?!

Yet, more than a million of these painful procedures are performed every year in the United States on guys like you.

Why, you ask?!

Well, the PSA screening test is completely outdated!

If your reading is even a little abnormal you’ll be headed under the knife.

Luckily, a brand new science has finally emerged.

And it could not only save you from getting an unneeded biopsy but from the terror of prostate cancer, in the first place!

What’s more?! It’s shockingly painless, non-invasive, and will prevent more than 70 percent of those avoidable biopsies.

Here’s what you need to know…

Thanks to researchers at Nottingham Trent University and University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust, there’s a simple new blood test that can determine if a prostate biopsy is actually necessary.

You see, scientists have discovered that your immune system changes in a specific way when cancer is present in your body. And that different can be detected in your blood.

The current screening method simply tests your blood for prostate specific antigen (PSA). If the reading is high, you’re told to get a biopsy.

But there’s a problem: a high PSA level doesn’t necessarily indicate that a man has prostate cancer and a normal reading doesn’t ensure that a man is cancer-free.

You see, of all the high PSA readings that result in biopsy, more than 75 percent turn up negative.

That’s a heck of a lot of excessive procedures!

This new test will be a follow-up to the PSA screening. Rather than just measuring PSA and judging from there, this additional blood test looks for a cancer-specific immune reaction.

If a patient only has a high PSA without the presence of this immune reaction, then a biopsy is not needed.

But if a patient has a high PSA and signs of cancer-induced immune reaction, then a biopsy is absolutely crucial.

Professor Masood Khan of University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust and Nottingham Trent explains that this development “has the potential to spare men with non-cancerous disease or low-risk cancer from unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures and tests.”

In fact, statistics show that it will prevent more than 70 percent of those unnecessary biopsies.

This additional screening not only prevents the agony of the procedure but also the anguish of waiting and worrying about a cancer diagnosis. And it saves time and money spent on the biopsy.

Not to mention, prostate biopsies are associated with a five percent risk of urosepsis, a potentially fatal infection of the urinary tract!

This brand new blood test is still being developed but researchers hope to have it on the market ASAP.

Until then, if you or a loved one is in need of a prostate exam or PSA reading, be sure to discuss the inconsistencies with your doctor before agreeing to a biopsy.

After all, you’re less than 30 percent likely to actually need it.
