Has everyone here had a TRUS Biopsy ?

My father recently had elevated psa at 18 and the doctor advised MRI and trus biopsy
my question is , if MRI shows something is the biopsy still necessary because it seems rather scary.
Thanks πŸ™πŸ»

  1. Hi thanks for reaching out. I am sending you over an article that explains the benefits of getting a TRUS biopsy and why doctor's recommend it: https://prostatecancer.net/diagnosis/transrectal-ultrasound. I hope this is helpful. Jill, (prostatecancer.net team)
