Prostate Cancer Malpractice

Signs and tests:

A rectal exam often reveals the hard, irregular surface of an enlarged prostate.

Testing considerations:

-PSA test results (prostate specific antigen) may be elevated, although other conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) can cause the PSA to rise.
-Free PSA may be more specific in differentiating BPH from prostate cancer.
-Urinalysis may reveal blood in the urine.
-Urine or prostatic fluid cytology may reveal atypical cells.
-A prostate biopsy confirms the diagnosis.
-CT scans may be performed to rule out metastasis (spread of the cancer).
-A bone scan may be performed to rule out metastasis.
-Chest X-ray may be performed to rule out metastasis.
