Description

This article aims to help nurses to support patients who require a prostate biopsy to diagnose or exclude prostate cancer. Nurses will also gain an understanding of the procedure for transrectal biopsy.

A transrectal biopsy is commonly used to access the prostate.
Indications for a biopsy include elevated levels of prostate-specific antigen in the blood, identification of abnormal areas on digital rectal examination and active surveillance of low-risk prostate cancer.
The healthcare professional uses an ultrasound probe to guide them to specific areas of the prostate to obtain biopsy specimens.
