Histopathological diagnosis of PCa can be established by transrectal ultrasound-guided TRUS biopsy after an abnormal finding in digital rectal examination or finding an increased value of prostate specific antigen PSA in the blood. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the correlation between PSA level and Gleason score, in order to predict prostate cancer aggressiveness at time of diagnosis.
