How is prostate cancer diagnosed?
The most common way that prostate cancer is diagnosed is through a biopsy. In this case, a biopsy is when a small piece of tissue is removed from the prostate and then examined by a urologist to determine if cancer cells are present.
If the biopsy confirms the patient has prostate cancer, the tissue is then assigned a “Gleason score.” The Gleason score is calculated by adding together the two grades of cancer cells from the biopsied tissue. Typical Gleason scores range between 6-10. The lower the score, the less likely it is that the cancer will spread.
What is urology?
Urology is the branch of medicine focusing on diseases and complications of the urinary tract system and reproductive organs, including the prostate, kidneys, and bladder.
Urologists perform a variety of procedures, the most common of which include vasectomies, cystoscopies, ureteroscopies, and prostate treatment procedures. Procedures intended to diagnose and treat prostate conditions include biopsies, UroLift, and transurethral needle ablation.
According to our provider database, urology is the sixth most common medical specialty by volume and the 15th specialty by average charges per provider.
