will tablets reduce Prostate enlargement?

I am aged 50. Recently due to discomfort during urination undergone ultrasound scanning which suggested that the prostate size 42x43x53mm = 54gm, hence Doctor prescribed Veltum plus for enlarged prostate. Whether the size has becoming alarmingly large? Is tablet is effective one? I prefer tablet rather than surgery. Whether tablets will reduce the enlargement? Please give your advice.

The average prostate size is 40x20x30, and weighing up to 16 grams. Therefore, as you may see is prostate is enlarged enough to start medication, no case to alarm.

Yes, the tablet is effective. However, I would suggest to use supplements (pills or tea) for enlarged prostate, you may randomly find them in the pharmacy.

In addition, lifestyle changes (no smoking, no alcohol), diet (no fries, no fatty foods, no spicy, etc) can also alleviate your symptoms.

Furthermore, I would suggest to check for any other urinary problems (infection) that are common for enlarged prostate.

Hope it helped!
