About this study

This study will attempt to identify potential non-pharmacologic interventions that will decrease the morbidity associated with prostate biopsy.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

See eligibility criteria

Men will be eligible for this study if they were referred for a non-saturation office prostate biopsy to rule out the presence of prostate cancer in the setting of an elevated PSA or abnormal DRE. These men will be identified from the prostate biopsy schedule and from those added to the schedule that day. There are no age restrictions, though likely the age range will go from 40-80 yrs. Health status will not be separately evaluated, but rather deemed adequate for men healthy enough to undergo prostate biopsy.
