Thanks for your query.Your ultrasound report is self explanatory that there is no cancer.It is a benign Enlargement of Prostate which is a part of aging process.Please consult Urologist who will advice you regarding further treatment.Please get your Serum PSA level done. Biopsy can be thought only if your serum PSA levels turn out to be higher than normal .There is no need to go for Biopsy at present.unless you get your Serum PSA level done
