Innovations in Cancer Diagnosis

A new book by Dr. Geo Espinosa, called Thrive, is about prostate cancer and the best ways to have a good life before and after the disease, as well as treating the cancer itself.

Dr. Espinosa notes that the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is not an adequate measure of the development of cancer, and he indicates that you need to check the 4K score as the next step. He also suggests that an MRI of the prostate be obtained.

He does not mention MRI spectroscopy, a developing technique that is a delineation of cancer cells as a separate pattern from benign cells.

Dr. Espinosa also indicates the importance of lifestyle changes such as eating vegetables (particularly broccoli and cauliflower), getting exercise, decreasing stress, and taking supplements like curcumin, vitamin D3, and zinc. He also points out the need to check blood levels to make sure that testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol are in the normal range.

This additional information all relates to holistic treatment of cancer that avoids the side effects of mainstream treatment methods.

You should also note that in the near future, the MRI spectroscopy will eliminate the need for biopsy in diagnosing of cancer, thereby decreasing the risk of spreading the cancer cells in the biopsy process.
