Prostate Cancers – Transurethral Resection and Enucleation Specimen


The dataset has been developed for the examination of transurethral resection and enucleation (suprapubic/simple/open prostatectomy) specimens of the prostate. The elements and associated commentary apply to invasive carcinomas of the prostate gland. Urothelial carcinomas arising in the bladder or urethra are dealt with in a separate dataset, while urothelial carcinomas arising in the prostate are included in this dataset.
