Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is the most accurate serum marker for cancer of the prostate (CaP). However, its sensitivity and specificity are suboptimal, especially at values ranging between 4.1 and 10.0 ng/ml (monoclonal), because benign prostatic hypertrophy and hyperplasia (BPH) and CaP frequently coexist in this range. This study was undertaken to… CONTINUE READING
