Cancer diagnosis information for patients from the College of American Pathologists

Fox Chase Cancer Center is an internationally recognized leader in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Our nationally ranked doctors provide a wide range of treatment options.

Screening and Diagnosis

Fusing Two Tools for Improved Accuracy:
MR/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy
for a Targeted Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer

Whereas the traditional method lacks precision and uses random prostate sampling, MR/ultrasound fusion biopsy helps urologists to avoid missing hard-to-find, yet often aggressive prostate cancer. It potentially minimizes the overdiagnosis of non-aggressive cancers, while maximizing the likelihood of detecting aggressive tumors.

Family History
Men who have a first-degree relative (son, brother or father) with prostate cancer should get a baseline test at age 40.

Biopsies guided by MR/ultrasound fusion enable both physicians and patients to make more informed decisions ranging from prostate cancer diagnosis to treatment options—such as active surveillance or more radical interventions.

Investigators at Fox Chase Cancer Center have a new study available for men with a recent diagnosis of localized prostate cancer (meaning the cancer is contained in the prostate and has not spread). It's focused on helping men to make the best decision about their prostate cancer treatment.
