No Rx...: The clinical significance of seeing some prostate calcification in its ultrasound exam is unknown and have been considered to have no connection with prostatitis or prostate cancer. So, don't let the info of having stones in the prostate bother you. Clinically, Doc takes care of the symptoms which may be related with prostate enlargement and poor bladder neck relaxation. So, no Rx is needed.
