Prostate Biopsy in Dubai at DRHC Urology Clinic


A prostate biopsy is a medical procedure used to detect prostate cancer. It involves taking small samples of tissue from the prostate gland to be examined under a microscope. At DRHC Dubai, we offer advanced prostate biopsy techniques to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment planning.

When is a Prostate Biopsy Needed?

A prostate biopsy is typically recommended if:

  • There are elevated levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the blood.
  • A digital rectal exam (DRE) reveals abnormalities in the prostate.
  • There is a need to monitor previously diagnosed prostate conditions.

Types of Prostate Biopsies

  1. Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS)-Guided Biopsy: The most common method, where a probe is inserted into the rectum to guide the needle to the prostate.
  2. Transperineal Biopsy: Involves inserting the needle through the skin between the scrotum and anus, often guided by MRI or ultrasound.
  3. MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy: Combines MRI images with real-time ultrasound to target specific areas of the prostate, increasing accuracy.

The Prostate Biopsy Procedure

  1. Preparation: Patients may be asked to stop certain medications, use an enema, and take antibiotics to prevent infection.
  2. Local Anesthesia: Administered to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Tissue Sampling: Multiple tissue samples are taken from different areas of the prostate using a biopsy needle.
  4. Post-Procedure Care: Patients are monitored for a short period and given instructions on managing any side effects.

Recovery and Aftercare

  • Discomfort: Mild pain or discomfort in the biopsy area is normal and usually subsides within a few days.
  • Bleeding: Light bleeding in urine, stool, or semen can occur but typically resolves within a few days to weeks.
  • Infection: Patients are advised to complete their antibiotic course and report any signs of infection, such as fever or severe pain.

Benefits of a Prostate Biopsy

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Provides a definitive diagnosis of prostate cancer or other prostate conditions.
  • Informed Treatment Decisions: Helps determine the best course of action for managing prostate health.
  • Early Detection: Early identification of prostate cancer increases the chances of successful treatment.

Risks and Complications

While generally safe, a prostate biopsy can carry risks such as:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Urinary retention
  • Discomfort or pain

These risks are minimized when the procedure is performed by our skilled urologists at DRHC Dubai.
