Most patients had 20-40 cc prostate volume with hard consistency and without nodules; a PSA level of > 20 ng/ml; and a gleason score of 8-10 or poorly differentitated. Age affected increased incidence of prostate carcinoma with the highes prostate volume (20-40cc). The  average PSA was 504.66 ± 10.26 and the median gleason score was 8 (6-10).
