The GPS test measures prostate cancer gene levels to assess how aggressively your cancer will grow or spread. Since certain genes influence this more than others, knowing which ones are active in your tumor helps determine your personal GPS result.
Your score is based on a scale of 0-100. Your genomic risk will indicate how your tumor behaves and can help you and your doctor determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
These results can predict both your chance of:
The GPS test provides a personalized assessment of how aggressive your prostate cancer is, helping you and your doctor discuss next steps with confidence.
