This report reviews the diagnostic and prognostic importance of the pathologic findings in prostate needle biopsies. The morphological findings of the needle biopsy may be placed into one of the following five categories: prostate cancer, atypical small acinar proliferation, high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, inflammation, and benign prostatic tissue. While the prime goal of the biopsy is to diagnose prostatic adenocarcinoma, once carcinoma is detected, further descriptive information regarding the type, amount of cancer, and grade forms the cornerstone for contemporary management of the patient and for assessment of the potential for local cure and the risk for distant metastasis. The information provided in the needle biopsy report regarding the attributes of carcinoma is used depending on the individual patient's medical condition and preference and on the treating physician's evaluation to determine whether any form of treatment is indicated and, if so, the type of therapy.
