How Is Prostate Cancer Detected?
The most common method of detection is through a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, which measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood, or a digital rectal exam (DRE). A doctor may also perform a transrectal ultrasound or biopsy, where a small tissue sample is removed from the prostate and examined under microscope to see if there are cancerous cells.
