A transrectal cytological aspiration method for diagnosing prostatic enlargements was used in 1000 patients during the past 10 years and the findings were correlated with the histopathological diagnoses. Cytology was found to have high degree of diagnostic accuracy: 95.21 percent in benign prostatic hyperplasia and 92.04 percent in carcinoma prostate. The technique is simple, easy to repeat and is highly suitable for outpatients. This is of especial value if there is any margin of doubt regarding the clinical diagnosis of cancer, as was the case with 50 percent of our patients.
