I was given the name verbally over the phone. I inquired of the assistant for the name of the test or result that prompted my physician to send me to an oncologist.
I am sorry I did not ask her to spell it out. My guess is that she likely mispronounced the word. She said that my "capper" was high. I shall call tomorrow for a spelling, but I thank you for your efforts.

Brief Answer:
Could be "UCSF-CAPRA Score" to assess the risk for prostate cancer...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Ok, then, I hope you will provide a few more details tomorrow when you see your caring doctor.

However, so far, taking into account that you are a male patient of 88 years old, then, most probably the test has been related to prostate and we call it : "UCSF-CAPRA Score" to assess the risk for prostate cancer.

Perhaps this test resulted a bit high to ask you and send to oncologist.

You can request a copy of the test results and send to me for further assistance.

All the best and God bless!

I had undergone TURP in April 2009. But urianation has never been smooth ro complete even after this surgery. I have to strain much, have to get up three to four times during the night for urination. A second urologist reviwed my ultrasound of my KUB and found out prostate enalrgement. He says anotehr TURP is required for this. I had taken homeopathy treatment for about 8 months with no improvement. Do I have to undergo a second TURP to remove the residual tissues? Is it safe? Please advise in detail.

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
