Prostate cancer at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica. A clinico-pathological profile at the time of needle biopsy diagnosis.

A prospective study of the clinico-pathological features of prostate cancer at the time of needle biopsy diagnosis was conducted in the Department of Pathology at the University Hospital of the West Indies over a one-year period. Ninety cases were diagnosed during this time. The mean age of patients at diagnosis was 72 years and the mean Gleason score of the biopsy, 7. 3. Serum prostate-specific antigen levels were markedly elevated in the majority of patients, with a mean value of at least 159.8 ng/ml in the 76 patients for whom this information was available. The significance of these findings and that of other histopathological features examined are discussed, particularly in relation to recognized prognostic factors. It is concluded that the diagnosis of prostate cancer in Jamaica appears to be considerably later than that seen elsewhere. This information should provide support for those who advocate the introduction of a vigorous screening process for prostate cancer in Jamaica.[1]
