Prostate Biopsy

Edited by Nabil K. Bissada

Queen Giovanna Hospital, Bulgaria

Prostate Biopsy represents the standard procedure for diagnosing Prostate Cancer. This procedure can be performed transrectally, through perineum or occasionally through the urethra. Although the procedures of Prostate Biopsy are covered in numerous publications, there is still a need for gathering different aspects and methods in one source. Hopefully, this book will help physicians in their effort to provide the best treatment for their patients.
