Certain PET scans could lead to prostate cancer misdiagnosis

Men in Texas and across the country may be concerned about prostate cancer, especially as it is one of the cancers most frequently suffered by American men. When diagnosing prostate cancer and making a plan for treatment, doctors frequently use positron emission tomography (PET) scans to detect certain types of activity. In particular, they may check for prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a specific type of enzyme that is included in prostate cancer cells and has a high level of reactivity. This means that it can be easily detected in a scan and can be used to determine the stage to which prostate cancer has progressed and whether it has spread through the body.
