Is a biopsy only way to diagnose prostate cancer?

To Ethan McConkey, Thank you. My urologist wants to do BOTH a random blind 12-core biopsy AND a fusion (not in-bore, not real-time) 3TMRI guided biopsy. From what I have read on the internet: [A] the inaccurate random blind 12-core biopsy was rated a grade of "D", [B] the fusion 3TMRI guided biopsy is more accurate than the random blind 12-core biopsy, and [C] the real-time in-bore (not fusion) 3TMRI guided biopsy is more accurate than both [A] and [B]. My current question is: "Should I skip all biopsies and just schedule 3TMRI in-bore, real-time robot assisted partial prostatectomy to remove the 2 lesions?" Jerry

Jerry, did you ever get an answer to this. I have the same question? 1 lesion with a PI RAD 4/5.
