abstract

  • Race is not a predictor of prostate cancer detection in men undergoing repeat prostate biopsies. With the exception of HGPIN, all other clinical parameters were similar between black and white men. Serum PSA, PSA velocity, HGPIN and ASAP were found to be significant predictors of subsequent prostate cancer detection.
