In brief: Prostate pathology
The gleason grading system, which is based solely upon architectural features of prostate cancer cells, closely correlates with clinical behavior. A higher score indicates a greater likelihood of having non-organ confined disease, as well as a worse outcome after treatment of localized disease.
