Hematuria After Prostate Needle Biopsy
Little: Prostate biopsy is done transrectally--meaning going through the tissue in your rectum/anus area and carries a very small risk of infection and bleeding.

A needle biopsy (or fine needle aspiration) is a procedure whereby a thin needle (similar to one the is used for drawing blood), is guided into a lesion and cells are obtained and then placed immediately onto a glass slide for evaluation under the microscope. Unlike a biopsy where "chunks" of tissue are obtained, a fna often obtains only several drops of fluid that ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Simple: A fine needle aspiration biopsy means using a thin needle (like the ones used to draw blood) to draw a very small tissue or cell sample from the lymph node. The sample is examined under microscope by a pathologist who can often make a diagnosis without the need for a surgical procedure to remove an entire node ...Read more
Apples N' Oranges: A biopsy is usually performed for tissue diagnosis of a tumor. The best method of biopsy (bx) is the safest, least invasive means to reach this dx. Therefore, the specific technique is based on what is being bx'd & where it's located. In the abdomen, most tumors can be bx'd by (ct or ultrasound-guided) needle bx. Rarely, laparoscopy may be necessary if tumor cannot be seen radiologically. ...Read more
Not if done right: Lungs have very few nerve endings within the lung. If done by a skilled doctor biopsy thru the skin (ie guide by a scanner) can cause pressure and a feeling of fullness but minimal pain. The level of discomfort relates to how accessible the nodule or mass is for the biopsy needle. ...Read more

The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more
