There are numerous treatment options available for those who suffer from an enlarged prostate. The treatment options range from medication to surgery.


According to the Mayo Clinic, the type of treatment needed depends on the severity of the condition and the patient’s age, as well as what course of treatment the patient prefers to pursue.


The Mayo Clinic states that the most common treatment for an enlarged prostate is medication. Medications should be able to ease the symptoms for those with a moderate condition.


If the medications aren’t effective, or if the symptoms are severe, a patient may need to consider surgery. Surgical procedures can range from minimally invasive to open surgery.
