Prostate advice, is a hard prostate always bad news?

Hello

My partner has had an internal examination for a routine check and the Dr said his prostate felt 'hard' . He sent him for a PSA test and he has now been booked in for a consultant appointment in a couple of days.
This is very quick so I am really worried.

Is a 'hard' prostate always bad news?

He is 60. Generally good health. Before this hadn't really noticed any particular symptoms other than he gets up once a night to use the loo when he didn't before and sometimes flow is slightly reduced, he has had what I think are called 'dry orgasms'.
I would appreciate any advice.
Thanks
