BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY
(BPH)

These are samples of an entire prostate that has been "plastinated" to preserve the specimen by replacing the water with plastic. Two halves are present. The slit down the middle is the prostatic urethra. The individual lobes are seen in other images.

    CARINOMA OF THE PROSTATE        
  A693615aCA.tif
Cross Section of a prostate with cancer prepared as an 1mm thick section, cleared and stained with hematoxylin. This is one of as series of three sections from this example of cancer. The prostate also has BPH but the dark blue is due to the high density of cells indicating the location of the cancer.
