Urologist 's  Response
Your prostate is enlarged. Normally it is heterogenous echotexture on ultrasound which means there are areas and white and black. Calcifications can also be a normal thing. Your prostate is obstructing the bladder and hence 98cc of urine out of 205 cc is left in the bladder. Consult your urologist regarding further investigations and treatment.
