The authors investigated the PSA concentration and the preoperative prostate volume of 113 histologically proved BPH and 31 prostate cancer patients. There was no correlation between the age of the patients and the volume of the prostate. Whereas, correlation was proved between the marker concentration and the prostate volume (p < 0.0001). The prostate volume and the PSA concentration ratio correlated between the BPH and tumorous patients (PSA density). The difference was highly significant (p < 0.001). The use of PSAD improves further the diagnostical value of PSA.
