The mature prostate is between __ g and remains relatively constant until approximately 50 years of
age, when the gland enlarges in many men; the average prostate volume in a 60- to 70-year-old individual is approximately __ g

20-25

48

2

Prostate gland volume can be used to calculate derivatives
such as the PSA density___

value more suggestive of ca?

PSAD = PSA/ Gland Volume

 

higher density values (>0.15 ng/mL/cc) are more suggestive of prostate cancer; lower values suggest BPH.

3

Congenital prostatic cystic lesions may arise from either Müllerian (__) or Wolffian (__) structures

Müllerian duct cysts and prostatic utricles

ejaculatory duct and SV cysts

4

Men at elevated risk for having prostate cancer are those older than __ years of age; those who have a __history of prostate cancer and are older than 45 years of age or __; or those with a PSA level greater than 1 ng/ mL at __ years of age and greater than 2 ng/mL at__ years of age

50 years

INITIAL PROSTATE BIOPSY •

Initial   diagnosis   of   prostate   cancer   based   on   informed   decision   making   in   an   asymptomatic   patient   (4)
 

Summary: DRE, symptoms,suggestive of mets,detected after TURP

 

Suspicious   digital   rectal   examination   findings/prostate   nodule   (5%–30%   cancer   risk)
• To   diagnose   prostate   cancer   with   symptoms   suggestive   of   prostate   cancer
• To   diagnose   prostate   cancer   with   findings   suggestive   of   metastatic   disease   (bone   lesions   and/or   adenopathy)
• In   the   setting   of   prostate   cancer   detected   on   routine   transurethral   resection   of   the   prostate   performed   for   presumed   benign   disease
