The risk of prostate cancer reflects many things, including the PSA but also age, race, and family history, which you have not shared with us. So assuming you are 45 y old, white, and without any family history, then with a PSA of 2 ng/ml, 38 cc prostate, and no nodules, the risk of a positive biopsy is approximately 15-20%.
Hello Dr. Krongrad, thank you for the reply, my apologies for leaving out those details. I am 49yrs old, white and there is absolutely no family history of PCa, my maternal grandfather had BPH for several years and passed away at the age of 90 from heart failure.
