Hi Tim - I went through this last year and share your anxiety. Not the best of news but until you get the biopsy results, it is pointless to worry too much about
it, easier said than done, I know.
It may be worthwhile to ask your urologist if he can do a MRI-TRUS guided biopsy. It is much more helpful to screen with a high powered MRI first and see what the radiologist can find. Many urologists can fuse the MRI image with the ultrasound imaging and direct biopsy sampling towards suspected "areas of interest". This way there is a better chance of getting representative samples of what might be going on. I had it done first and it was pretty clear I had two "lesions" that the URO sampled in addition to the normal pattern. My signature tells the rest of my story.
Good luck and ask any questions your feel necessary between now and then.
