Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Both the conditions, prostate cancer
and BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia
) give rise to increase in prostate volume and high PSA (prostate specific antigen
To differentiate between these two conditions, detailed ultrasound
report and biopsy is needed.
If ultrasound is suggestive of calcification, homogenous prostate than BPH is more likely.
But if ultrasound is showing absence of calcification, heterogeneity, invasion of capsule etc then possibility of cancer is more.
Biopsy is confirmatory in such cases.
So consult doctor
and discuss all these to differentiate between cancer and BPH.
Hope I have solved your query.
Wishing good health to your grand father.
