Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM !

Your report shows an enlarged prostate -prostatomegaly.
38 gm is a bulky gland.
You should consult an urologist, get examined (DRE) and general check-up.
If you are in the late middle age and above, you may be asked to check PSA levels.
Commonly prostate enlargement is benign-non cancerous.
If it is hard, irregular on DRE, it could be cancerous and will need evaluation.

Benign enlargement can be treated with medicines initially. If severe obstruction found (unlikely here as residual urine is minimal), TURP surgery may be needed.

Fat reduction in the diet may help fatty liver.
Please get lipids checked in the blood.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries.
Thank you and Good luck !
