I have an obstruction in my prostate. I have seen so many choices like needle ablasion,laser, turp how do I know what decision to make.I would like to make an educated decision.Can you direct me to info on that.
HI

If the prostate is obstructing then the gold standard is TURP.TURP is standard against which all other treatment methods are compared and rated.

Then the next choice is laser enucleation of the prostate.

Then comes all other models like TUMT, needle ablation, HIFU etc.They are always inferior to TURP and LASER surgeries.

I hope this answers your question.
