[Have You Heard?!] New Prostate Cancer Test?
No biopsy needed!
Getting a prostate cancer diagnosis is just the beginning. Determining what to do about your cancer is the real dilemma.
Surgeons are eager to slice and dice you – and you’re probably eager to get cancer out of your body.
But the fact is, unless you have an aggressive form of prostate cancer, the best course of action is no action at all.
But how do you know if your cancer is aggressive or not?
A revolutionary test can help diagnose aggressive prostate cancer five years sooner than other methods… no painful biopsy necessary.
Most prostate cancers are slow-growing and non-life-threatening. Believe it or not, the five-year survival rate for localized prostate cancer is almost 100%.
So it makes NO SENSE to get aggressive treatments that will leave you incontinent and impotent when you could have lived a perfectly normal life by doing nothing at all.
But figuring out if your cancer is aggressive is typically easier said than done… and most doctors will talk you into getting the treatment “just in case.”
But now a new test could take the guesswork out of how to treat your prostate cancer.
It’s a urine test called Prostate Urine Risk.
Researchers looked at the gene expression of 167 different genes in the urine samples of 535 men, and they identified a combination of 36 genes that are considered biomarkers for the Prostate Urine Risk test.
Using this test, the researchers were able to sort the men into different risk groups based on the aggressiveness of their cancer.
You get two critical pieces of information with one simple test:
- It can diagnose the presence of prostate cancer (without resorting to a dangerous needle biopsy)
- It can identify how aggressive the cancer is, helping to determine the best treatment for your specific situation.
In fact, this test could accurately predict the progression of cancer up to 5 years sooner than the standard methods.
Even better? This knowledge identified men who were eight times less likely to need any treatment at all for at least the next five years.
Imagine the time, money, and recovery time, and quality of life that can be saved with this simple test.
It’s not available everywhere yet. But make sure you ask your doctor before letting him come near you with a needle.
