Abstract

The primary method of screening for and detecting prostate cancer is the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. Although this test is very prostate-specific, it is not cancer-specific; conditions other than prostate cancer can cause an elevated PSA. Many efforts have been made to discover more specific tests and methods beyond the PSA. This article describes several literature-supported tests and methods to better stratify a man's risk of having prostate cancer.
