i didn't think PSA exams ever told you if you had cancer. Thought they merely gave reason to have a biopsy in order to find out for sure.

These urine based gene tests for PC have been around for a few years..The problem seems to be bringing them to market..There is a lot of dancing going on backstage as different labs try to nail down patents and obtain exclusive rights to a particular test, The rights to perform these tests are sold to other labs who then sit on the test, looking for a better (cheaper) procedure that makes more money...
