What are new prostate cancer tests in 2023?
Prostate cancer biomarker tests provide more insights about prostate cancer risk beyond the traditional PSA test.
New prostate cancer tests in 2023 can alleviate worry and provide more information about prostate cancer treatment. A high PSA test doesn’t always tell the entire story or warrant a biopsy right away.
Prostate cancer tests are also known as prostate cancer markers (PCMs) or prostate biomarker tests. There are different tests based on where someone is on their prostate cancer journey. With the right test at the right time, patients and their healthcare providers can better identify risk, prognosis, treatment and next steps. Most prostate cancer tests in 2023 are non-invasive and can lead to better plans of action for tackling prostate cancer.
