atypical small acinar proliferation

[a-tip-uh-kul small uh-see-nar pruh-lih-fuh-RAY-shun] also called ASAP or sometimes just atypia; a suspicious finding on a prostate biopsy pathology report in which the prostate cells look like they might be cancerous, but there are too few of them to be sure. If ASAP is found, there’s a high chance that there is cancer in the prostate, so many doctors advise having a repeat biopsy within a few months. See also biopsy, prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia.
