    Abstract:  Prostate cancer is a major disease of concern in adult males. Histological architectural heterogeneity has rendered challenges to diagnosis. Definitive diagnosis has been relied on Pathologist subjectivity. Major histologic features of infiltrative growth pattern, nuclear atypia and loss of basal cell on the prostate epithelium remain the most common features observed for in histopathological diagnosis. However benign mimicry of these features poses challenges to definitive diagnosis. Increasing frequency of supportive histologic features of prominent nucleoli, collagenous micronodules, perineural invasion, blue tinged mucinous secretions and intraluminal crystalloids which previously were unknown is making advancement in the diagnostic library as an additive protocol. In this study we sought to observe the frequencies of these supportive histologic fe.. View More»
