- Your urologist wants to keep you on active surveillance.
- So it is better to make sure that there are no other suspicious lesions or foci which may be missed on biopsy.
If no foci then you do not require anything at present just follow up with PSA (prostate-specific antigen).
If there are other foci which are malignant then you may require surgery depending on the stage of disease and hence MRI.
MRI can be done pre or post biopsy.
If your biopsy had shown aggressive tumor then MRI could have been avoided and you would have required surgery directly.
