I am 57 year and have enlarged prostrate. My pas is 7.1. I am taking urimax. If I remove prostrate through surgery, will it help and also does it remove the chances of prostrate cancer at later stage. Which is the best method of operation. Is it turp, beep or hole.

If any obstructive urination. Prostatic needle biopsy to be done before turp.
it will definitely reduce the chance of cancer . but that is not the indication for surgery. it is your symptoms and your response to the medicines which will decide the indication for surgery. HoLEP is good if available.
