[Must Read] Take Guesswork Out of Prostate Cancer
These days, navigating through the tests for prostate cancer can be like walking through a minefield.
Should you get a PSA test or not?
If your PSA is high, should you get a biopsy?
If you’re diagnosed with prostate cancer, should you treat it, or follow a “watch and wait” approach?
One wrong step and it could be the end of life as you know it.
It’s true that some prostate cancers are aggressive, but the majority of them progress slowly and cause little to no complications.
Watchful waiting vs. slice and dice – what’s the right answer?
Finally, there’s a test that could take the guesswork out of prostate cancer treatment.
This is the first test that can accurately identify a man’s risk of aggressive prostate cancer—which gives you the answers you need to make the best decision for your future.
Researchers spent more than a decade studying over 20,000 men in order to determine the most accurate biomarkers to predict how aggressive a prostate cancer is.
The result is the 4Kscore Test. It is called 4K because it measures four prostate-specific kallikrein proteins (prostate-specific antigen (PSA), total PSA, intact PSA, and human kallikrein 2).
These test results are then combined with clinical information (age, DRE, and prior biopsy status) in a unique algorithm that calculates a patient’s risk for aggressive prostate cancer (defined as 7 or higher on the Gleason score).
Over 20 years, men with scores of less than 7.5 percent rarely progressed to advanced prostate cancer.
The test is incredibly accurate, with fewer than 2 percent of significant cancers being missed, and ZERO more aggressive (Gleason 8) cancers being missed.
Those are results I can stand behind.
A study on over 600 patients found that using the 4K test led to 64 percent fewer biopsies.
This is a big deal because biopsies are incredibly invasive and can come with some pretty hefty complications, like bleeding, urinary retention, and life-threatening infections. And all too often, the results encourage men to get a surgery that can DESTROY your quality of life.
The bottom line is that this test can take the guesswork out of prostate cancer testing and treatments.
If you’ve had a PSA test and are considering a biopsy, talk to your doctor about getting a 4Kscore Test first.
To a brighter day,
