Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent cancer types in men over 40. 4Kscore® Test is a novel approach for urologists and patients, for determining the risk of aggressive (Gleason 7 or higher) prostate cancer. The 4Kscore® Test will dramatically increase the accuracy of prostate cancer diagnosis, particularly in its most aggressive forms.
What are the benefits of the 4Kscore® test?
Also, by avoiding a diagnosis of a low-grade, non-life threatening form of prostate cancers (Gleason score = 6), the patient may avoid treatments that he may not need. In addition, a major European study has demonstrated the 4Kscore® test predicts the probability of distant metastases within 15 years.
The test has been developed as a result of over 10 years of research in Europe and The United States and has gained a lot of popularity due to being easier on the patient and by giving the doctors additional information to make the correct decisions.
