BPH: Enlargement of prostate per se is not significant unless you have symptoms like frequency, nocturia, small or slow stream, difficulty emptying your bladder. Most men over fifty will have some enlargement. Obviously you must have some problems if you had an u/s, discuss it with a urologist.

Same ...: Experience has told us placing ultrasound probe in the rectum right next to the prostate is the most direct easiest way to visualize the configuration and texture of the prostate. Transrectal ... is more technically specific, but the goal of either term is the same as described. It is abbreviated as TRUS and serves as a wonderful guide to do prostate biopsy.
