The possibility of prostatic carcinoma should always be considered.
A normal PSA level does not exclude the diagnosis of carcinoma; increased levels are not specific for prostatic carcinoma. Acid phosphatase is less sensitive and less specific than PSA and should not be used.
Prostate biopsy under ultrasound guidance if clinical assessment and PSA are suggestive of malignancy.
