I had a 12 point prostate biopsy and all 12 were benign tissue but 5 had focal atrophy with acute or chronic inflammation. What causes that? And what can I do to get rid of it and get my PSA back down? Both doctors I asked seemed vague or unsure. Has anyone with this biopsy result researched this and gotten an answer?

yes my husband has just that with one cancer spot, and several focal atropy, this is what I located:
in the setting of longstanding chronic inflammation appears to predispose to carcinoma
