Dull ache at base of penis and frequent urination

I have recently started to have a dull ache at the base of my penis, actually seems deeper internally. I have also had periods of needing to pass urine more frequently. Went to my urologist who did a psa which came back as 1.5 I am 56 years old. Also had a DRE which found an area which was fuller that the other side and was tender to touch. When prodded it gave the same dull ache that i was experiencing. He has scheduled a TRUS with biopsy so I am somewhat apprehensive about all of this fearing the worse being cancer.
