Question:

Which of the following answer choices about the common uses of the transrectal ultrasound is false?
1. Detect disorders within the prostate.
2. Determine whether the prostate is enlarged, with measurements acquired as needed for any treatment planning.
3. Detect an abnormal growth within the prostate.
4. Help diagnose the cause of a man`s infertility.
5. Detect bladder diseases.





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Which of the following answer choices about the common uses of the transrectal ultrasound is false?" is:

5. Detect bladder diseases.



Explanation
Transrectal ultrasound is commonly used to detect disorders within the prostate, to determine whether the prostate is enlarged, to detect an abnormal growth within the prostate and to help diagnose the cause of a man`s infertility. It is typically used to help diagnose symptoms such as: a nodule felt by a physician during a routine physical exam or prostate cancer screening exam, an elevated blood test result, difficulty urinating. While it is not commonly used to detect bladder diseases because of the poor resolution in far zone.

Abstract
Metastasis to the prostate gland from gastric cancer is exceedingly rare. We have presented a rare case of gastric malignancy metastasizing to the prostate diagnosed by transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy.
