In brief: None that
Work, or are in the main stream (no pun intended).
The psa test is also not specific for cancer.

There is a urine test called pca3 that can be helpful in diagnosing prostate cancer but the only definitive way is prostate biopsy.

There are studies on dogs smelling the urine and diagnosing it!

In brief: No
There is no urine test that can diagnose prostate cancer.
The diagnosis is made by a biopsy of the prostate gland.

The PCA3 test is performed on urine collected after digital rectal examination (DRE). If the value is high, the chances that prostate cancer will be found on subsequent biopsy are increased.
