In brief: Prostate

There appears to be no cancer based on the biopsy, which is good.
Prostatitis refers to an inflammation of the prostate tissue. Modular hyperplasia i think is a typo for nodular which refers to benign prostate hypertrophy, a condition that occurs usually in men after 50 but occasionally as early as 40s. You may read about it elsewhere.

In brief: Benign

Pathologists differ as to whether it's even possible to tell whether the inflammation on biopsy is significant, and the hyperplasia that may cause obstruction is a clinical, not a pathologist's diagnosis.
Glad it was benign.
