    I recommend the book, "You Can Beat Prostate Cancer" by Bob Marckini. It gives the pros and cons of the various treatments. It convinced me of the way to go six years ago, and I'm very satisfied.

    Your symptoms might be more than BPH. You need a full workout.

    As to your questions there are a number of treatments for BPH. The old standard is TURP. There is a new one that uses a stent to prop the channel open in the prostrate.

    The are other treatments such as lasar.
