What is prostate biopsy?

Prostate gland is located between the bladder and the penis and in front of the rectum. The prostate gland secretes a fluid that protects and nourishes the sperm and helps produce semen. The prostate gland also prevents urine from being included during ejaculation. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer is usually a very slow growing cancer, often causing no symptoms until it is in an advanced stage. If cancer detected early it can help prevent prostate cancer from entering the more advanced stages. Prostate biopsy is recommended if results from initial tests, such as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test or digital rectal exam, suggest that they may have prostate cancer.

• Individuals who wants to determine if they have prostate cancer

The surgeon takes a medical history and asks for a urine sample to test for urinary tract infection (UTI). And if a patient have UTI, then they should be treated with antibiotics before the procedure. Patients should avoid certain medicines include Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplement prior to the procedure. they should do a cleansing enema at home before the procedure.
