The PROSTATE GURU answers your prostate questions!

In the last decade, PSA was all we had. Fortunately, in 2014, that's not the case anymore. The following are tests which can complement the PSA in decision making about whether a prostate biopsy is really needed:

1) PHI (prostate health index) - blood test

2) 4Kscore - blood test

3) PCA3 - urine test

There are also various calculators based on PSA, physical exam results, and age which assess the risk of cancer. These include:

1) PCPT 2.0 calculator

2) SWOP calculator
