chips, simple prostatectomy specimens and radical prostatectomy. A questionnaire was to get the necessary
details of the patient. Microsoft Word and Excel were used to generate graphs and tables. Results were
presented as number and percentage for qualitative data.
Results: The present study included 149 prostatic specimens. Total 4394 specimens received in the
histopathology section 3.39 % were the prostatic specimens. TURP was done in 144 cases, needle biopsy

and prognosis of the patient. Early diagnosis and treatment help to reduce mortality and morbidity due to
prostatic lesions.
