Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The prostate is a small gland in the male pelvic area that is part of the reproductive system. It is located under the bladder in front of the part of the digestive tract called the rectum and functions to produce fluids that nourish and protect sperm. When a man ejaculates, the prostate secretes this fluid to be drained into the penis and excreted with sperm to become sperm fluid.
The three most common abnormalities that occur in the prostate are inflammation in the form of prostatitis, enlarged prostate or BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and prostate cancer. These three conditions generally have symptoms related to the urinary tract such as always wanting to urinate or even difficulty urinating, pain in the lower back area, fever, and the like.
Regarding your question, it is true that one of the ways to diagnose prostate abnormalities is to take a sample and have it examined in the Anatomical Pathology laboratory. If the sample size is not small enough, what will be done is to cut it crosswise to a thickness of approximately <3mm. After that, painting will be carried out using several steps and involving certain dyes, one of which is called hematoxylin eosin. The result of this painting is a purplish or reddish colored sample. After that, then examined under a microscope, and look for signs of malignancy, mainly in the form of certain cells. So, hopefully it answers your question.
