This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
New Genetic Tests, 4K Score, PSA3, Oncotype DX, Prolaris.
I recently had a negative biopsy but continue to be concerned about my PSA level.
Just checking in to see if anyone on the forum has experience with the new tests that are becoming available. The tests are intended to access your risk for aggressive cancer prior to a biopsy or after a negative biopsy.
Re: New Genetic Tests, 4K Score, PSA3, Oncotype DX, Prolaris.
I did the Oncotype DX test but it is for men recently diagnosed with early stage PCa. It provides a score within ranges of very low, low, and intermediate risk to give you another data point on deciding if AS is an appropriate treatment option.
