Brief Answer:
Silodal will do both

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.

Silodal use results in decrease in prostate size and increase in peak urinary flow rate.
It’s an Alfa adrenergic blocker which retards disease progression; means reduces size of enlarged prostate gland.
So Silodal will do both
1-Decrease size of gland and
2-Reduce urinary problem.
