Hi there!

The normal prostate weight is around 11 gms and increase calculated weight could occur secondary to enlargement due to benign or malignant causes. Though in the absence of specific lesions, this is more likely to be a benign causes; a detailed evaluation/ further testing may be required to rule out the possibility of a malignancy and depending on the cause identified, a management plan can be drafted accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
