Diagnosis of prostate disease

Dec 1, 2016Posted by nameless

Prostate disease is diagnosed using a variety of tests, including:

physical examination, including digital rectal examination (DRE), where the doctor inserts a gloved finger into your rectum to check the size of your prostate

blood test for prostate specific antigen (PSA test; needs to be discussed with the doctor)

mid-stream urine (MSU) tests to look for infection or blood in the urine

ultrasound scans and urinary flow studies

biopsies of the prostate.
