Molecular Testing in Prostate Carcinoma


In line with all areas of molecular oncology, molecular testing has also expanded into the area of prostate carcinoma, providing insight into pathobiology of these tumors as well as significantly aiding in identifying diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers. Most recent guidelines from professional societies now include recommendations for relevant molecular testing in prostate carcinomas to complement the clinical practice. In this presentation, we will discuss relevant established and emerging standard of care molecular biomarkers in prostate carcinoma and the role pathologists can play in identifying clinically relevant molecular biomarkers.

Originally presented on February 7, 2023, in Park City, Utah.
