One more thing - until I get the Biopsy or go the Turp route, do you think having one of these might help with the symptoms? (Taken from Web MD)
Minimally Invasive Treatments for an Enlarged Prostate
When medications don't help your enlarged prostate, several procedures can relieve symptoms -- without surgery. They are performed in a doctor's office. "These procedures use various types of heat energy to shrink a portion of the prostate," explains Westney. "They are very effective."
Interstitial Laser therapy (ILT): Laser methods can be used to remove prostate tissue that is pressuring the urethra. Men are given anesthesia for the procedure. This procedure involves placing a small tube containing a laser fiber thought the urethra and inserted it into the prostate. Once in the prostate, laser energy is activated to heat the prostate and destroy the tissue to shrink the gland.
There is very little bleeding or recovery time. However, there may be a need for a second laser treatment.
This kinda sounds like it might help me!
Although according to the Mayo website, it's usually reserved form men with normal or slightly enlarged prostates.
One more thing: Does this condition ever clear up on its own over time? I heard some people get over it with no treatment at all....
