Answer

Answer

Secondary prostatic leukemia/lymphoma is often discovered incidental to a diagnosis of prostatic adenocarcinoma. Symptoms at presentation may thus be intermixed with those of prostate cancer and include elevated serum PSA (mean PSA: 10.3 ng/mL). [1] Secondary prostatic leukemia/lymphoma may also present with obstructive symptoms. [9]
