Thanks for writing in.
The treatment that is used depends on the severity of the problem. The usual approach is that we use drugs known as alpha blockers ( eg: tamsulosin) to relieve the symptoms. If the patient becomes better and the kidneys remain unaffected, then this therapy is continued. Otherwise , a surgical approach would be taken.
Xatral contains alfuzosin and will not reduce the hypertrophy of the prostate. It will only reduce your symptoms.
Hope this helps.
