This is a study of the incidence of occult malignancy in 222 patients suffering from benign hypertrophy of the prostate, diagnosed clinically. After the necessary investigations, these patients underwent transvesical prostatectomy. The histopathology of the prostate revealed that 19 prostates had microscopic foci of malignancy in them and the remaining 203 showed benign hyperplasia of the prostate. This incidental finding of malignancy was predominant in the sixth and seventh decade. A retrospective analysis did not show clinically differentiating features in either entity.
