When after initial screening or when referred to a patient with suspected symptoms of prostate cancer, the risk of prostate cancer increases. The patient is found to have a biopsy. Because this is the only diagnosis that confirms the presence of prostate cancer. Biopsy is performed by a urologist through the anus. In this procedure, 3 to 6 pieces are removed from each side of the prostate using a biopsy needle and sent to a pathology laboratory. Sometimes additional diagnostic procedures can be performed before a biopsy. One of these procedures is cystoscopy, which is used by an endoscope with a thin, flexible tube that bends through the urethra to look at the urinary tract as well as the bladder.
Another diagnostic step to know the complete condition of the prostate is an anal prostate ultrasound, which gives the doctor a lot of information about the condition of the gland or glands in the prostate.
And the doctor performs an anal biopsy more consciously.
Prostate biopsy can be performed on an outpatient basis without the need for hospitalization, and the patient rarely needs hospitalization.
