Subjects and Methods: The present hospital based cross-sectional study was done to find the various histopathological patterns of the prostatic lesions seen in transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) specimens at a tertiary care center. Histopathological examination was done to observe the type and morphology of these lesions. Results: 90% of the patients suffered from benign prostatic hyperplasia while prevalence of carcinoma of prostate in TURP specimens was 5%. Conclusion: Routine histopathological examination of TURP specimen is helpful in diagnosing the undiagnosed cancer.
