A world‐wide comparative study of the frequency and characteristics of latent carcinoma of the prostate was undertaken in seven areas, using standardized methods and “blind” microscopic evaluation in order to reduce selection and observer bias. The morphological features of 350 latent carcinomas found in 1,327 prostates were examined. Two Chinese populations, from Hong Kong and Singapore, showed a low frequency of latent carcinoma in comparison with western Europeans in Sweden and the Federal… Expand

Comparative geographic-pathologic autopsy studies on frequency and growth type of latent prostate carcinomas show that in populations with a lower incidence, for example Japan and Singapore, latent carcinomatous foci are not considerably rarer than in regions with high incidence, however, obvious differences are seen when comparing the size of the foci and the growth types.

Geographic pathology of latent prostatic carcinoma
The results suggest that the prevalence of LIT tumors shows a race variation similar to the incidence of clinical carcinoma of the prostate, and that LNT tumors probably remain latent during the individual's life span. Expand
The prevalence of prostate carcinoma and its precursor in Hungary: an autopsy study.
OBJECTIVES The prevalence of incidental prostatic adenocarcinoma (PCa) and its precursor, high grade intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) in an autopsy series from Hungarians (Central EuropeanExpand
Time Trends in Histological Features of Latent Prostate Cancer in Japan.
Chronological changes in the histological characteristics of Japanese latent prostate cancer were noted as it is more prevalent in the contemporary series, which may reflect a worldwide trend in increasingly aging societies. Expand
Latent carcinoma and atypical lesions of prostate. An autopsy study.
The findings support the concept that atypical lesions may represent a potentially precancerous lesion in patients with large latent carcinomas than in those with small ones. Expand
The epidemiology of prostatic cancer. Geographical distribution and time-trends.
Birth cohort analysis shows that for US non-whites, cohorts born before 1896-1900 showed an increase in mortality for all age groups, but the death rates fell for cohorts born subsequently, a phenomenon also observed in Australia and England and Wales. Expand
Comparison of the incidence of latent prostate cancer detected at autopsy before and after the prostate specific antigen era.
With the more widespread use of screening, the prevalence of latent prostate cancer has decreased 3-fold, and the decrease in the prevalence is especially dramatic in men older than 70 years. Expand
Incidental carcinoma of the colorectum at autopsy and its effects on the incidence and future trends of colorectal cancers in Singapore
It was observed further that incidental carcinomas were found predominantly in the ascending colon and the current underdiagnosis of ascending colon carcinomas has to be taken into consideration when any future increase in right‐sided cancers of the large bowel is observed. Expand
Latent thyroid carcinoma in Iceland at autopsy.
The prevalence rate of latent thyroid carcinoma in each sex does not follow the frequency distribution of clinical disease, being 7.5% in males and 5.1% in females, and suggesting that promoting factors might be of particular importance where incidence and mortality rates are high. Expand
Incidence rate and management of prostate carcinoma.
The age-standardised incidence of prostate cancer varies more than one hundredfold between the areas with the highest and lowest incidences in the world and the value of early diagnosis and early aggressive treatment is controversial. Expand


Prostatic carcinoma. An autopsy study.
Patients with cancer involvement of periurethral tissue in material obtained by electroresection or enucleation should be regarded as poor risks and as requiring treatment. Expand
Epidemiology of cancer of the prostate
No significant relationship was found to socioeconomic status, marital status, fertility, social habits, previous diseases, weight, height, hair distribution, or laboratory data. Expand
