How is prostate cancer diagnosed?

Ultimately, prostate cancer is diagnosed by a pathologist examining a biopsy (tissue sample) of the prostate. Before this, your doctor may have identified a problem when performing a digital rectal examination. This involves your doctor putting a gloved finger in your anus to feel for a hardened or enlarged prostate.
