abstract

  • Several commercially available blood and urine tests have been shown to improve specificity of PSA for high-grade prostate cancer. Use of such tests would decrease unnecessary biopsy and overdiagnosis of indolent disease. Biopsy of men with moderately elevated PSA without use of such a reflex test should be discouraged.
