Above normal PSA levels and a negative biopsy result does not effectively confirm or deny the presence of prostate cancer, but a new test for a protein that stains positive for prostate cancer has shown promising results. EPCA is the protein that scientists have discovered has a positive correlation to the presence of cancer of the prostate and can be tested for, providing relatively sensitive detection to date. It can detect cancer in prostates that appear histologically normal, but later are shown to have developed cancer cells. It is being promoted in conjunction with biopsy of the prostate.
