Prospective evaluation of prostate specific antigen density and systematic biopsy for detecting prostate cancer in Japanese patients with normal rectal examinations and intermediate prostate specific antigen levels.

Abstract

PURPOSE To improve the specificity of cancer detection in patients with normal digital rectal examination and intermediate prostate specific antigen (PSA) level, PSA density has been recommended, with biopsy based on a PSA density of 0.15 or more. PSA density is reportedly higher in Japanese men than in white men, because of physiological differences… (More)
