sample requiredSample Required:

No specific sample is required for Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy (TRUS Biopsy). Instead, it is a procedure in which tissue samples are directly collected from the prostate gland using a biopsy needle.

test timeTest Time:

The test duration may vary depending on the number of biopsy samples required. Typically, the procedure takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

test normal rangeTest Normal Range:

Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy does not have a specific “normal range” as it is a diagnostic procedure rather than a test with a normal or abnormal result.

what is the testWhat is the test?

Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy, also known as TRUS Biopsy, is a procedure used to obtain tissue samples from the prostate gland for diagnostic purposes. It is commonly performed to investigate suspected prostate cancer or other prostate conditions when other tests, such as prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test or digital rectal examination, indicate abnormalities.

test procedureTest Procedure:

During the procedure, the patient lies on their side, and an ultrasound probe is inserted into the rectum to visualize the prostate gland. The urologist then uses the ultrasound images to guide the biopsy needle precisely into different areas of the prostate to collect tissue samples. The collected samples are sent to a pathology laboratory for examination under a microscope.

when to take the testWhen to take the test?

Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy is recommended when there are abnormal findings in other tests, such as elevated PSA levels or abnormal digital rectal examination results. It is an important step in diagnosing or ruling out prostate cancer and other prostate conditions.

who should take this testWho should take this test?

Men with abnormal PSA levels or suspicious findings on a digital rectal examination may be advised to undergo Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy. It is especially recommended for those at higher risk of prostate cancer, including older men or those with a family history of prostate cancer.

precautions for exceptional casesPrecautions for exceptional cases (pregnancy, etc.):

Ultrasonography Guided Prostatic Biopsy is not relevant for pregnant individuals, as it is a procedure specifically performed on male patients to assess prostate health. If you have any specific medical conditions or concerns, discuss them with your healthcare provider before the procedure.

Q3: How long does it take to get the biopsy results?

A: The tissue samples obtained during the biopsy are sent to a pathology laboratory for analysis. The results may take a few days to a week, depending on the laboratory’s workload.

Q4: Can I resume normal activities after the biopsy?

A: Most patients can resume normal activities within a day or two after the biopsy. However, it is advisable to avoid vigorous physical activity and heavy lifting for a few days to allow the biopsy site to heal.
