Keywords:Prostate carcinoma, biopsy.
Nine hundred and six prostatic biopsies were examined histologically at department of Pathology King Edward Medical College, Lahore and Department of Pathology Allama Iqbal Medical College, Lahore. They were comprised of 798(88.08%) TURP specimens, 93(10.26%) open biopsies and 15(1.66%) needle biopsies. Out of these 906 cases, 765(84.44%) were benign and 141 were diagnosed as adenocarcinomas of various degrees of differentiation. This gives an incidence of prostate cancer as 15.56% on histological examination of prostate biopsies. Most of these carcinoma patients were above the age of 55 years (93.6%) with a peak incidence (34.75%) between 71 and 80 years. The results were tabulated and compared with other studies on this subject.
