Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for writing to Healthcaremagic,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern,

Your ultrasound findings suggests mildly enlarged prostate.This is a common finding in males with aging.
It is important to know whether you have any related symptoms like increased frequency,hesitancy,urgency etc.
You may need also need PSA(prostate specific antigen) estimation.

You may need clinical evaluation and may be prescribed medicines if needed.

Generally this is not a very serious finding and patient only need conservative treatment.

It is good that echotexture is normal which may indicate benign nature.

Get well soon.

Hope I have answered your query.
