Hi and welcome, im not a doctor but did have prostate cancer and was treated with 45 robotic radiations.
From what i understand about your question is that  you caught it early and thats good news.
The prostate gland can develop dysplasia due to a tendency toward prostate cancer. A condition known as prostate intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) can reflect the onset of prostate cancer. This is a condition where the cells of the prostate gland begin to disintergrate due to cellular breakdown. If left untreated, the prostate will begin to deteriorate under the onslaught of cancerous cell growth, resulting in prostate dysplasia.
