Caption: Prostate diagnostic surgery. Image 4 of 8. These containers are used during a TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) biopsy procedure. The prostate is a small gland found just below the bladder in men. A biopsy is a tissue sample that is taken in order to diagnose an abnormality. During TURP, prostate tissue is excised using an endoscope, flushed out of the body into these containers, and then separated from the fluid. TURP is often used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that can restrict urination.
