What are the disadvantages of Prostate Biopsy test?

The test results are inconclusive if the biopsy sample does not contain enough tissues.

As a biopsy test collects tissue from small areas, chances of missing a cancerous growth are possible.

Normal biopsy results do not rule out cancer, and if the tests are positive for cancer it has to be confirmed with other tests - Prostate Specific Antigen, bone scan, lymph node biopsy, CT scan.

Well I won't be doing that again! Had transrectal prostate biopsy on Monday, by Wed evening was in hospital with blood infection and also severely painful infection in right testicle. Took three days of antibiotics to get rid of the infection and fever, but I'm told the testicle [swollen to three times normal] will take weeks to return to normal size. No one saying anything about whether it will still work or not. Lovely.
