The correct diagnosis is half the cure!

Before a treatment, it is important to know the stage of prostate cancer as accurately as possible. Only then an optimal therapy recommendation can be made with the best possible chance of recovery. Following are the various methods used to accurately classify the tumor stage:

- PSA Level
- Results of the tissue sample (Gleason score = degree of aggressiveness of the tumor)
- High-resolution, transrectal ultrasound
- CT and MRT
- Bone scintigraphy (scan)
- Choline PET (positron emission tomography)
