    There are contradictory studies on a link between positive family history and PCa. Recently I linked a study that said no relationship (I can't find it at the moment). However,

    Hi NonQ. Good job on doing all you could to investigate that PIRADS 5 area and confirm your "good" PCa diagnosis. It's a lesson to us that the tests don't always fit together like a well-made...

    That is one of the selling points of genomics tests: some high-grade PCa has a low risk of mets. At the other end, my uro uses a genomics test to see if some low-volume G7 (3+4) men might be...
