AbstractProstate cancer (CaP) is the most common non-cutaneous cancer diagnosed in Ireland with a cumulative lifetime risk of 1 in 7 men1. At autopsy, up to 60% of 80 years olds have latent CaP2 while up to 80% have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) 3. The detection of CaP incidentally has fallen in the post prostate specific antigen (PSA) era from ~ 20% to ~5%4. Incidental CaP detected at transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) can be sub-classified into pT1a (<5% of prostate chips) and pT1b (>5% of prostate chips) and the management subsequently stratified.
