Orchiectomy = ↓ testosterone production = ↓ DHT => prostate cells undergo apoptosis. (This mechanism is similar to using 5α-reductase blockers to treat BPH.)

Apoptosis is characterized by DNA fragmentation (pyknosis, karyorrhexis, karyolysis).

hungrybox  DNA fragmentation histopath: Note that degradation in apoptosis is progressive. From pyknosis -> karyorrhexis -> karyolysis. Aka condensation -> fragmentation -> complete dissolution.
