Pathology of Prostate Cancer
The diagnosis of clinically suspected prostate carcinoma rests on histopathological confirmation . Histologically, prostate carcinoma is a gland-forming cancer, i.e. an adenocarcinoma with origin most commonly in prostatic acini (acinar adenocarcinoma) and less commonly in ducts (ductal adenocarcinoma). Rarely, squamous cell carcinoma, urothelial carcinoma and small cell carcinoma or even sarcomas may arise in the prostate.
