Negative Prostate Biopsy Result

If your prostate biopsy results return as negative, you likely do not need to undergo active treatment.

However your doctor should continue to carefully monitor your health on a routine basis, which may include regular prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and/or digital rectal examination (DRE) exams.

If your follow-up PSA and/or DRE exams indicate the presence of prostate cancer, your doctor may choose to perform a repeat prostate biopsy.

It’s important to be aware that sometimes biopsy results are negative, but PSA levels remain high or continue to increase.
