How Does Prolaris Testing Work?

Since a prostate biopsy has already been done in order to make an initial prostate cancer diagnosis, there is no need for another biopsy to be done. Prolaris testing uses the same tissue from the original biopsy to run the test.

The prostate tissue sample will be sent to Myriad where it will be tested and analyzed to determine the aggressiveness of the prostate cancer.

Once the testing is complete, the results will be sent directly back to the physician. The results will contain a personalized Prolaris Score as well as a 10-year prostate cancer mortality risk and the risk of cancer spreading outside of the prostate.
