Prostate biopsy is a procedure in which small hollow needle-core samples are removed from a man’s prostate gland to be examined for the presence of prostate cancer. It is typically performed when the result from a PSA blood test are high. Extended biopsy schemes take 12-14 cores from the prostate gland through a thin needle in a systematic fashion from different regions of the prostate Schematic histopathological approach to evaluate prostatic tissue was discussed.
The tissue samples are then examined under a microscope to determine whether cancer cells are present, and to evaluate the microscopic features (using Gleason’s score). The lowest Gleason Score of a cancer found on a prostate biopsy is 6. These cancers may be called well-differentiated or low-grade and are likely to be less aggressive – they tend to grow and spread slowly. Cancers with Gleason Scores of 8 to 10 may be called poorly differentiated or high grade. Reporting of Prostatic biopsy was discussed along with conditions which mimic carcinoma. The histopathological features to differentiate them were highlighted along with immunohistochemical markers.
