Q3) Origin of prostatic carcinoma is from which zone

B. Peripheral zone
C. Central zone

Ans3 b

The peripheral zone constitutes 70% of the prostate gland and is the area palpated during digital rectal examination (DRE).

The area around the ejaculatory ducts is called the central zone and accounts for 25% of the gland.

The transitional zone comprises 5% of the prostate gland around the urethra. In a pathologic review of 104 prostate
glands from patients who underwent radical prostatectomy, 68% of the cancers were located in the peripheral zone, 24% in the transitional zone, and only 8% in the central zone. Almost all stage T1 (nonpalpable) cancers
in that study were found in the transitional zone

It is characterized by hepatic dysfunction in the absence of metastasis, and elevated alkaline phosphatase, aminotransferases and prolonged prothrombin time. Raised bilirubin is seen in 30%
