Answer

Taken as a group, primary and secondary prostatic leukemia/lymphoma most commonly presents in the seventh decade. [1, 9] Primary prostatic lymphomas, which tend to be high grade on the basis of a large series, usually present with symptoms of a large prostatic mass, including obstructive symptoms (eg, hesitancy, urgency) and hematuria. [9] Digital rectal examination findings usually are abnormal, showing a diffusely enlarged or nodular prostate in the majority of cases. Serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) usually is not elevated (mean 3.5 ng/mL). [9]
