Customer Question
had a slightly enlarged prostate...
I had a cystoscopy procedure and the Urologist indicated I had a slightly enlarged prostate for my age. The Urologist indicated my prostate size was in the range of 30 to 60 grams. I conveyed to the Urologist that was a wide range to indicate the size of my prostate gland after a cystocopy. He agreed and again commented that my prostate was slighlty englarged for my age. However he did not perform the acrual cystocopy procedure. Also since December of 2015 my PSA was 10.02 in March it was 3.62 and 2 weeks ago it was 1.48 and yes i take finesteride.
What is an acceptable size for a prostate gland for a person my age and since my psa score has been going down does this mean my prostate gland has been shrinking

BTW i had an inflammed prostate gland due to a bladder infection during December 2015 which caused my prostate gland to enlarge
Urologist: dr abid, Board Certified Urologist replied 1 year ago

A normal, healthy prostate gland is a walnut-sized organ that weighs approximately 15 grams in young men and around 30grams (about an ounce) in men age 50 or older.

And Ultrasound is best tool to detect prostate size , you should get it done .

You have normal PSA levels right now mean less than 4 ng/ ml .

So relax .

Good luck .

i understand what you're saying but i was told the size of my prostate gland after the cystoscopy was 30 to 60 grams. That's a wide range. I understand my PSA is below 4.0 and was over 10.0 in december and in march was 3.62 and now 1.48 so does that mean my prostate gland is shrinking as my PSA is going down since inflammation during december
Urologist: dr abid, Board Certified Urologist replied 1 year ago

Yes when PSA levels are coming down this suggests that prostate size is declining and coming down .

This is good marker of recovery .

Regards .

does recovery mean i can one day reduce/stop taking finesteride/tamsuloson (inflammation/bladder infection cause an iflammed prostate gland back in december). Is this realisticlly possible to stop taking those prostate mediciation? and again i was given a range of size regarding my prostate gland of 30 to 60 grams based on the test results of a cystoscopy procedure performed back, isnt that a big range and thats very confusing to me

im here
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
is an ultrasound an invasive procedure and are you saying it's more accurate to detect the size of a prostate gland versus a cystoscopy procedure i had a few months ago?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
are you still there?
Urologist: dr abid, Board Certified Urologist replied 1 year ago

No Ultrasound is not invasive procedure , this is simple procedure , that scan your Prostate with probe applied over there .

Cystoscopy is little invasive but Ultrasound is safe and non invasive .

Regards .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
