Simple prostate cancer test could diagnose five years early and prevent thousands of invasive operations A simple urine test could detect aggressive prostate cancer five years before treatment is needed and save thousands of men from invasive surgery.

Researchers said the simple test could make a “huge difference” to men with suspected disease, giving many the all-clear, without having to undergo biopsies.

The £100 test - which could be offered within three years - is much more sensitive than current methods, picking up how aggressive the disease is and at what point men will need treatment. The Daily Telegraph
