Anybody with experience of the URINE PCA3 TEST for Prostate Cancer?
It is not available yet in Thailand.
 
 
Or do a Google search.

Thanks for posting the interesting article. It sounds like that this test could be another weapon against the daemon we call prostate cancer. Unfortunately, here in Canada, it will take years, if ever, before such new and useful methods will be implemented. All we can do is wait and hope.
All the best to you.
