Blog Updates for August 2014

August 8, 2014 In Prostate Cancer Calculators we added: Risk prior to biopsy. UT Cancer Therapy & Research Center has a prostate cancer risk calculator where the user inputs race, age, PSA, family history of prostate cancer (yes/no/unknown), digital rectal exam (normal/abnormal/unknown), past biopsy (never/positive/negative/unknown) and get back the probability that a biopsy will show high grade cancer, the probability that a biopsy will show low grade cancer and the probability that a biopsy will be negative for cancer and also show it in a graphical form. (The three probabilities will sum to 100% as they are mutually exclusive.) The calculator is discussed in this medscape article.
