Aggressive screening and prostate needle biopsy protocols have been successful in early detection of low-volume posterior tumors. Consequently, we have observed an increased incidence of anterior-predominant prostate cancers. However, the zones of origin, patterns of spread, and patterns of extraprostatic extension of this group of tumors have not been well studied. Of 1312 radical prostatectomies performed at our institution over a span of 4.5 years, 197 had predominant (largest) tumors… CONTINUE READING
