Who Needs the 4Kscore™ Test?
The 4Kscore Test is for any man concerned about his risk for high-grade, aggressive prostate cancer, and is especially useful when considering a prostate biopsy. The 4Kscore provides information that a man and his Urologist can use to make an informed, shared decision about whether or not to perform a prostate biopsy.

Common Reasons for a TRUS prostate biopsy (Transrectal Ultrasound):

Family history of prostate cancer
Elevated PSA or High PSA
Abnormal results from a digital rectal exam (DRE)
Prior negative biopsy

How Does the 4Kscore™ Test Work?
Early detection of prostate cancer currently relies on screening with the PSA test, which does not clearly distinguish between prostate cancer and less serious conditions, and as a result many men are subjected to unnecessary prostate biopsies. There are over 1 million prostate biopsies performed in the US each year. Only 20% detect aggressive prostate cancer while 80% of prostate biopsies are either negative or detect a low-grade, non-life threatening form of prostate cancer.

The 4Kscore Test can help reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies, by measuring a man’s risk of having aggressive prostate cancer. If that risk is low a patient, in consultation with his Urologist, may decide not to have a prostate biopsy and avoid the associated pain and complications such as bleeding and infection that can result from the biopsy procedure.
