In brief: Here are some...

Enlarged prostate does not necessarily need treatment (Rx) & small prostate does still need Rx at times; the bottom line of treating prostate-related voiding disorders is to relieve symptoms, to protect bladder from irrecoverable damage, & to avoid back-up injury to kidneys.
How? ...with drugs to relax bladder opening and those to shrink prostate as needed, to surgical intervention with procedures
