This composition begins with the testis and a fabulous figure, Sir Astley Cooper, who wrote an early textbook on the organ. The early 20th century saw the first major development, the description of the seminoma by the French investigator Maurice Chevassu, but the pace of knowledge didn't accelerate until after World War II with a major composition from the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) by NathanB. Friedman and RobertA. Moore, soon followed by the first series testis fascicle by FrankJ. Dixon and Moore. Other noteworthy benefactions were made by two masters of gonadal pathology, Gunnar Teilum and RobertE. Scully. In the 1970s, NielsE. Skakkebaek played a seminal part in evolving in-situ neoplasia of the testis. The academy of British testicular tumour penned, in themid-1970s, under the editorship of Roger C.B. Pugh, one of the stylish textbooks on testicular pathology. Advances in more recent times have been largely commanded by ThomasM. Ulbright of the Indiana University School of Medicine. Compliances on the prostate gland date back to Andreas Vesalius and William Cheselden, the ultimate appearing to have introduced the word for the gland. Note is made of benefactions on the deconstruction and histology of the gland by Oswald Lowsley,L.M. Franks, and John McNeal. Diagnosing melanoma of the prostate was brought into the ultramodern age in a corner 1953 composition by Robert S. Totten et al. In the 1960s, Donald F. Gleason introduced a grading system that's now in use worldwide. The content of premalignant lesions has been well established only for roughly three decades, grounded originally on the work of Dr McNeal and David G. Bostwick. One of the first to write a book on the bladder was the remarkable British surgeon-pathologist Sir Henry Thompson. Workers at the AFIP, including Colonel JamesE. Ash and FatallahK. Mostofi, wrote numerous outstanding papers on bladder pathology. The places of other institutions, similar as Johns Hopkins University, the Mayo Clinic, and St Peter's Hospital Institute of Urology, London, and those who worked there are noted. Knowledge of the pathology of the urachus dates largely back to the remarkable book on the content in 1916 by the Hopkins investigator ThomasS. Cullen. Information on renal tumours dates largely to the work of Paul Grawitz, but mindfulness of the numerous variants of renal cell melanoma in general was slow to evolve, and has only accelerated in recent times. The AFIP group of Dr Mostofi, adeptly supported by Colonel CharlesJ. Davis and IsabellA. Sesterhenn, has contributed to knowledge of renal neoplasia with papers of note on oncocytoma, metanephric adenoma, and medullary melanoma. In themid-1980s, the German workers Wolfgang Thoenes and Stephan St
