Most of the acinar adenocarcinomas are located int he peripheral zone. Bone mets are very common in case of prostatic carcinomas. Most often these tumors are multi-focal. These tumors comprise of a variety of patterns with lack of basal cells similar to breast carcinomas that lack myoepithelial cells. Pathologic stage for tumors confined to the prostate are pT2; extra-prostatic extension confers a pT3 stage with 3a tumors involve the bladder neck, and 3b tumors show seminal vesicle invasion.
