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!
