Prostate Specific Antigen Levels and Prostate Cancer Detection Rates in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease

The Journal of Urology, 05/17/2012

In the authors' study population of patients with end stage renal disease age stratified prostate specific antigen was higher than in the general population. The cancer detection rate was increased in the patients with end stage renal disease compared to that in patients with normal renal function at specific prostate specific antigen intervals. Lower prostate specific antigen cutoffs may be appropriate to recommend prostate biopsy in patients with end stage renal disease.
