Suggest treatment to reduce the size of prostate gland

Hi, I have a problem and its about the increase of size of the prostate gland. It is 38mm x 50mm x 38mm or 38 g in size. According to the Abdomenal Ultrasound I had the "prevoid urine volume" is 550 ml and "postvoid urine volume" is 150 ml.Please help out. Is there any way that the size can be reduced or I will have to go for surgery..? What are the health risks related to this problem?

You can be prescribed tamsulosin medicine to relieve urinary symptoms due to prostate enlargement. Meanwhile you have to investigate with PSA estimation in serum as well for further work up. If PSA fall within range than you can start dutasteride as well for reducing prostate size. If medicine working than no need for surgery. I suggest you consult urologist for detailed evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
