The findings you: describe are typical for benign prostate enlargement. Prostate enlargement may be patchy; it usually involves the center of the gland. Prostate cancer tends to affect the outer part of the gland and may escape the covering (capsule) of the gland. That said, ask your urologist to explain these findings & advise u about follow up. If u have symptoms of prostate enlargement, u need f/u in any case.
