There is considerable evidence that the prostate biopsy
to spread the prostate Cancer to other locations within the
prostate. This has the potential of making the prostate Cancer
more aggressive and perhaps potentially life-threatening.
If the prostate Cancer becomes more aggressive, it also makes the necessity for invasive procedures to remove or destroy the prostate more credible.
And that is the second reason I do not like to see prostate biopsies in the majority of cases. It tends to lead patients down the path of invasive and damaging procedures. For a man to lose his prostate is not like losing a tooth. The prostate is a very important organ and the damaging consequences of losing it tend to significantly reduce the quality-of-life in most patients that have these procedures.
Instead of having statistical predictions it is more productive to make the changes to your diet and lifestyle and take the natural supplements that will bring down your PSA and in any event reduce the chances that you will have an active let alone life-threatening prostate cancer
I am not advocating that one should not have a PSA regularly monitored. On the contrary, I think it is a good early warning indicator. Also, an elevated PSA reading should not be ignored. It is a good indicator, certainly the best we have, and you should take precautionary action.
As a backstop, where despite all your best efforts to bring down your PSA by natural means, it continues to rise, I recommend my advanced prostate cancer risk assessment. That is a series of medical tests incorporating a very sophisticated scan by a Prof of urology.
In most cases, not only will the aggregated data from those tests reveal whether you do have prostate cancer, it will also give you a qualitative prediction as to whether the prostate Cancer is potentially life-threatening or not.
What is a PSA Score? I have a high PSA score what should I do? What is an optimum PSA level or reading? Is a PSA test accurate? How do I keep my PSA levels down?
When you have a question about your PSA, a PSA Reading or PSA Test, or your prostate health in general, having the best answer is vital. For example, not being properly informed about the difference between invasive and non-invasive solutions to your prostate health questions could effect your quality of life, your health, even your general well-being. This webpage offers comprehensive information about PSA scores, PSA tests, PSA levels and PSA readings based upon years of research, study, and real world experience.

Here is what the Wikipedia says about needle tracking " A more important issue that is often not
discussed between physician and patient involves the possibility of �needle tracking�; the very real
possibility of spreading cancer cells beyond the prostate when a biopsy is performed. An extensive
review of the literature confirms that once a needle penetrates the capsule of an organ, a
phenomenon called �needle tracking� takes place. When the needle is withdrawn from the targeted
organ, the chance of spreading cancer cells (when encountered) establishes itself while every
puncture of the prostate adds to this risk. Despite the significance of this risk to the patient,
physicians generally fail to acknowledge a process that allows cancer cells to lie dormant or
incubate for up to 10 years or more regardless of the treatment rendered. In a 2 billion dollar
prostate biopsy industry, the phenomenon of �needle tracking� takes place approximately 20-30
percent of the time. This coincides with the frequency that ultrasound and biopsy encounters a
cancer, suggesting that 70-80 percent of biopsies are performed unnecessarily, while putting the
