Figure 10

The cumulative diagram of 1615 PCa foci in 255 prostatectomy specimens. The cumulative diagram of 1615 PCa foci shows that prostate cancers are mostly localized in the peripheral zone, and that toward the base PCa foci seem to diverge laterally. PCa seems to be frequently located in the dorsal half of the peripheral zone of the prostate. The frequency of tumour foci in the various locations are coded by colours, blue = low, red = high frequency.
