Histopathological study of prostate cancer in Libyan patients in Eastern region between years (2015 to 2018)
Men with prostate cancer are old age, histopathologically; all cases were adenocarcinoma and are well-differentiated (grade 1). More patients are diagnosed at a late stage (stage IV), and most of them show gradual decrease in PSA level after the patient underwent the surgery, hormonal and chemotherapy.
Prostate cancer is more common in men over the age of 65 years and the second leading cause of death among men in the United States. We studied prostate cancer (n=239) with regards to age, histopathological types, grade, and stages between years (2015 to 2018) using H&E stained section. All cases were histologically adenocarcinoma with different grades. Most of the cases were ≥65 (90%), grade 1 (35.6%), stage IV (89.8%) and most of them presented with back pain (47.1%). Majority of cases show gradual decrease in PSA level after the patient underwent surgery, hormonal and chemotherapy (36.4%)
