Welcome to HW, sorry you need to be here.
Dial the worry down to concern. Yeah, easier said than done.
A positive DRE is never a good thing, but all you know now is that something isn't right. That hard thing may or may not be PC it could be a nodule. Also PSA isn't a test for cancer, just tells you about
relative prostate activity.
A good doctor won't speculate without cause and will look to the evidence.
The thing to do now is to just get through the biopsy, which is annoying, uncomfortable and undignified.
If the worst does prove to be true, well you've got every hope of a great outcome. It won't be a fun road, but you're husband will make it. There are so many treatments available that you'll have the problem of trying to pick among them.
Checkout the sticky threads at the top of the forum and ask all the questions you have, we're here most days.
I'll be in the shop.
