Prostate Biopsy

Your GP will determine whether a

biopsy

is necessary after he has carried out screening tests. A 

prostate

biopsy is a routine procedure and will be ordered after results from screening tests (a blood test or a digital

rectal exam

) show you might have 

prostate cancer

. The most common biopsy method is a transrectal ultrasound-guide prostate biopsy (

TRUS

). It is a simple 10 minute procedure where the surgeon will use an ultrasound probe inserted into the rectum to create an image of the prostate gland and with a needle, remove minute cores of cells. These are then analysed by a Pathologist. The procedure will be carried out by a

Radiologist

or

Urologist

.
