67 years old; 5'11''; 153 lbs
Symptoms: feels like I have to urinate even after urinating. However, can go 3 to 6 hours and 5 to 7 hours at night without voiding
Recent U/S:
Prostate volume 50cc
Post void residual: not 134cc
Mild diffuse bladder wall trabeculation
Recent PSA 1.33 / digital exam negative

I realize volume and residual is very high. Should I be taking medication?
Any suggestions?

Normal men have less than 12 mL of residual urine. The normal prostate size for an adult male is 15cc to 30cc (one half ounce to one ounce). Men whose prostate gland is larger than 30 cc are more likely to be diagnosed with enlarged hyperplasia. You should start to take an alpha-1-adrenergic antagonists. if you are not tolerate with it, you should take a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor.
