Asymmetric prostate: Appears to be a rather benign variant with no clear correlation with prostate cancer. The presence of a nodule is believed to be associated with a higher risk for cancer. Best would be to discuss findings with your PCP and see if establishing with an urologist for surveillance would be appropriate.
