Atypical Small Acinar Proliferation in the ProstateMeiers, Isabelle MD*; Kahane, Hillel MD, FCAP†; Bostwick, David G.

Prostate cancer has been identified in subsequent biopsies in the majority of cases of ASAP, indicating that this finding is a significant predictor of cancer. Identification of ASAP warrants repeat biopsy for concurrent or subsequent invasive carcinoma.
