An enlarged prostate can be a nuisance but you have many treatment options. It is not cancer and urgent decisions are not required. Treatment largely depends on the severity of your symptoms, size of your prostate, your age and health, and your personal preference. Not all men with an enlarged prostate require treatment. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and together you can determine the best treatment for you.
