Saw this news yesterday. Has anyone had this test done?
My other question is for those who have the current ultrasenstative test is there is any reading of PSA means at some point reoccurrence will occur? Because from what I understand this new test is just an even more sensitive test to see if you have any PSA in your blood and their basing a level on the PSA of whether prostate cancer is still in your body?
