Dr Mbassi Achille Aurèlei - Yaounde Central Hospital, Yaounde, Cameroon

Dr Mbassi Achille Aurèlei speaks to ecancer at the 2019 AORTIC conference in Maputo about the complications of performing a digital-guided biopsy.

He describes a study that he conducted, comparing digital-guided and echo-guided biopsy of the prostate.

Dr Aurèlei explains that conducting an echo-guided biopsy produces better results, but may not be accessible due its high cost.

He concludes by discussing the main challenges surrounding the care of patients with prostate cancer in Cameroon.
