Elevated PSA: Innovative Tests help with better decisions.
Elevated PSA is a frequent and concerning test finding in men. Because the PSA test is not very specific for prostate cancer and can be elevated as a result of many other causes, elevated PSA frequently causes significant amount of anxiety and uncertainty. Many men are subjected to prostate biopsy with as many as 70-80% of men not having prostate cancer.
Innovative tests now available at New York Urology Specialists include the Prostate Health Index test which provides better sensitivity and specificity for prostate cancer detection. The PHI test allow us to stratify men with elevated PSA into those who are at higher risk and those who are at lower risk for prostate cancer. This test is most valuable for men with PSA under 10.
The 4KScore is another important prostate cancer test now available at New York Urology Specialists. The 4KScore test is used in men with elevated PSA or as a replacement for PSA to predict which men are likely to have high risk prostate cancer. A combination of 4KScore and the PHI test provides valuable additional information not available with other tests such as the PSA test or PCA3 test.
Comprehensive Care for All Stages of Prostate Cancer
We offer comprehensive care for all stages of prostate cancer. Whether you are newly diagnosed with localized prostate cancer and considering various options that may include active surveillance, robotic prostatectomy or radiation treatment, we can help. If you have PSA recurrence after treatment or have been diagnosed with metastatic disease, we can help with treatment of advanced disease using most modern treatment options.
Not Just Technicians – We Specialize in Surgical and Medical Treatment of Prostate Cancer
While there are many options for treatment of prostate cancer, it has become a field where technicians offer their skills without a comprehensive approach. One technician will do your surgery; another offers you chemotherapy or radiation. Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger is proud to be one of the few physician-scientists who offers comprehensive approach to caring for men with prostate cancer.
