In brief: Stones

We develop calcification and stones in various places in the body.
Prostates can have them as well and may be a response to a history of prostate infections or irritation. Check with the urologist.

In brief: Can be normal

Prostatic calcifications may occur with prior trauma or infection of the prostate.
Depending on age, further evaluation may be indicated, as chronic prostatitis may associated with an increased incidence of prostate cancer. Prostate calcifications may be a sign of chronic prostatitis.

In brief: Nothing

It is not unusual for a man to have prostatic calcifications.
This is usually calcified fluid within the prostate (concretions) which do not require treatment. If he is having urinary symptoms, he may need a course of antibiotics for possible infection from chronic prostatitis.
