In brief: It depends . . .

A successful cure for mild benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) depends upon how you define "successful cure" and "mild".
Pill wise, you can relax the prostate (capsule) or shrink it, or do both at same time. A 3rd class of oral treatment uses cialis, better known to treat erectile dysfunction. Studies suggest supplements don't work. There are many invasive surgical options if you fail medications.
