Hi. The major question here is how much the symptoms of an enlarged prostate bother the patient. There are, of course, medications like Flomax and Avodart that can help shrink the gland somewhat and ease the symptoms, and those should be tried first. It sounds to me as though if anything should be tried it should be the medications. That said, the TORC procedure is indeed very effective for men with a major BPH problem
