This one flipped by from the PPML. Here is a study in human cadavers that were diagnosed with prostate cancer. It shows the most common
locations for metastatic pathways of prostate cancer:
Mets to the different places (percentages add to over 100% because of multiple metastatic sites in study)
Distribution of PCa within the Body Upon Autopsy:
Adrenal Gland: 13%
Brain and Meninges: 7.5%
Hum Pathol. 2000 May;31(5):578-83; Metastatic patterns of prostate cancer: an autopsy study of 1,589 patients; Bubendorf L, Schopfer A, Wagner U, Sauter G, Moch H, Willi N, Gasser TC, Mihatsch MJ.
