TRUS biopsy

Q | what happens after the procedure?

A | Once the sampling is complete, you will be able to leave hospital. You may experience some discomfort for a few days until everything settles down.

You should not drive on the day of the TRUS biopsy. The prostate sample analysis may take up to 2 weeks. Mr Thilagarajah’s secretary will contact you as soon as the results are ready.

An appointment will be arranged for you to be reviewed in the outpatient clinic. Depending on the results, further tests and scans may be necessary. This will be discussed with you fully at the consultation.
