REASONS TO AVOID PROSTATE BIOPSY:

  1. It is dangerous, painful, incapacitating, with serious consequences and can cause metastasis, septicemia, and even death
  2. The chance of its detecting cancer in minimal as the tissue sample obtained by the needles is less than 1% of the average prostate in the patients in which it is taken
  3. If cancer is detected, the possibility of metastasis increases considerably because of :
    • The inflammatory reaction produced by the needles  
    • The possibility of perforating the capsule of the tumor causing metastasis

THE BIOPSY IS NOT INDISPENSABLE AND MUCH LESS IS IT URGENT
