Urologist 's  Response
Prostate enlargement as such needs no treatment. U need medical advice only when
1. There is difficulty in passing urine or complete inability to pass urine.
2. Bleeding in urine.
3. Kidney failure due to block caused by the prostate.
4. If the urine flow is low as measured by uroflowmetry.
Your urologist will most probably advice medical treatment initially, and surgery later only when necessary.
Hope this helps

Prostatomegaly is enlarged prostate and is usually benign unless erratic blood tests and severe symptoms like blood in urine. In this case a prostate biopsy should be done and surgery is to be done. In other cases of prostate enlargement medications helps with periodic evaluation and examinations.
