Do you have any new information about a PIN diagnosis stemming from a prostate biopsy?

Do you have any new information about a PIN diagnosis stemming from a prostate biopsy? Does this indicate increased risk of developing prostate cancer?

Greg, you may find this link helpful: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/prostate-biopsy/basics/results/prc-20013254.

It states “Sometimes the pathologist finds cells that appear abnormal but aren’t cancerous. Words used in pathology reports to describe these noncancerous conditions include ‘prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia’ and ‘atypical small acinar proliferation.'”
