Trusting the MRI

Over the last 10 years I've had numerous checks for prostate cancer. Though the MRIs were clear each time they still have done the nasty template biopsies as well. ( All thankfully negative and they've finally concluded they can stop checking). Because there's a 5-15% chance* of missing something in an MRI check.

So there's a long way to go still before the MRI route is adequate, it appears.

*No. I don't know why it's a range.
