Which test is recommended for checking that prostate cancer is organ-contained? A needle biopsy or a Trans-rectal MRI?

Radiography: Needle biopsy will only reveal tumor cells within the prostate gland. Usually, multiple core biopsies are obtained as cancer cells can be scattered throughout the prostate gland. To determine if the cancer has spread beyond the prostate locally, transrectal ultrasound or MRI would be more appropriate. To evaluate for metastatic disease, CT or PET scanning would be modalities of choice. ...Read more

Prostate - do you have to wait 30 days for MRI after needle biopsy out of 12 biopsies, 3 came back positive, 6, 6, and 7. So they said it's a 7 but want to wait 30 days for mri

Prostate - do you have to wait 30 days for MRI after needle biopsy out of 12 biopsies, 3 came back positive, 6, 6, and 7.  So they said it's a 7 but want to wait 30 days for mri

It : It is best to wait about a month after the biopsy before having an mri. This is because there can be bleeding or other changes in the prostate after the biopsy that can make it difficult to get accurate images of the prostate. These changes may obscure or mimic cancer and the MRI might not be interpretable. The biopsy changes and bleeding are usually gone after 4 weeks or so. ...Read more

Husband 57, haematuria june july 2011, ultrasound prostate & urinary, cystoscopy, biopsy, CT abdomen, urovysion, showed normal, haematuria again now. ?

May need re-check: The first question is whether or not this gross or microhematuria. If it is goss hematuria, then it could be the prostate or something else that was undetected during the first evaluation. In addition, it is also worthwhile to have urovysion or fish test done to see if there are cells in the urine with abnormal dna suggesting the possible presence of a bladder cancer. ...Read more
