abstract

  • Prostate specific antigen velocity is a significant predictor of prostate cancer and high grade prostate cancer in men with 3 or more prostate specific antigen tests before prostate biopsy. Black and Hispanic patients appear to be at increased risk for prostate cancer at higher prostate specific antigen velocity, as are men older than 60 years. Further studies should confirm these results and create age and race specific guidelines to assess prostate specific antigen velocity.
