Efficacy of Repeated Transrectal Prostate Biopsy in Men Younger Than 50 Years With an Elevated Prostate-Specific Antigen Concentration (>3.0 ng/mL): Risks and Benefits Based on Biopsy Results and Follow-up Status

Abstract

PURPOSE Prostate cancer is rare in men younger than 50 years. Digital rectal examination (DRE) and measurement of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) concentrations are standard screening methods for detecting prostate cancer.
