Answer

Answer

Stromal tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) have been reported in both young patients and elderly patients (age range, 27-83 y), with most patients older than 50 years.

Patients present most often with urinary and/or fecal obstruction, hematuria, abnormal rectal examination with a rectally palpable mass, or elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels. [21] Association with adenocarcinoma of the prostate has been reported in a small percentage of cases. [3, 10, 12]
