Laboratory result of the six core needle biopsies: the presence of a carcinoma with a Gleason score of 6 (3+3) in the proximal third of the peripheral zone of the left lateral lobe of the prostate gland; the presence of atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (AAH) in the middle of the peripheral zone of the left lateral lobe; and the presence of pre-malignant high-grade PIN in the distal third of the peripheral zone of the left lateral lobe. The examination also indicates: the presence of a carcinoma with a Gleason score of 7 [3+4 (5%)] in the middle third of the peripheral zone of the right lateral lobe of the prostate gland; the presence of a carcinoma with a Gleason score of 7 [3+4 (10%)] in the distal third of the peripheral zone of the right lateral lobe.
Radical Prostatectomy suggested.
