On the basis of an analysis of the materiał comprising 1172 prostatectomies carried out in the years 1962—1973 in the urological department of the Province Hospital in War-saw the authors found that prostatic cancer was present in 8.36% of these cases.
No differences were found between the
mean ages of patients with prostatic carci­noma and patients with benign prostatic hy-pertrophy.
There was, however, some tendency of prostatic cancer to develop at a later age which might be confirmed in a larger mate­rial.
