Brief Answer: Around two-thirds of the prostate gland. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understood your concern. As you said your prostate gland volume is 101 cc, your urologist might have felt the enlargement of upto two thirds because normally volume is around 30 cc. More than it can be felt on Digital Rectal Examination. But it also depend on the palpation so probably felt more than half to two-thirds of the prostate gland. Hope it helped you. Thanks.
