A quote from this link:
"The results clearly showed that BPH was associated with elevated estradiol, decreased androgens, and increased SHBG. However, DHT not only did not cause new prostate growth, but DHT inhibited it by blocking the binding of estradiol to SHBG."

I have enlarged prostate. Mostly it does not bother me but I am urinating frequently.
Few weeks ago I had ultrasound of abdominal area looking for any stones. No stones.
I had to drink lots of fluid and hold untill last moment, she measured the amount of urine in the bladder.
Then I had to empty my blader, it was not easy, out of original over 0.5L I was left with 0.3L.
This normally does not happen, lucky for me.
She warned me that my condition may destroy kidneys.
So now I have a reason to think of what to do with my prostate.
At Sloan Kettering, where I go every year or 6 months to check my prostate, they told me that if I ever want they have a guy who does it (conveniently).
Here is description of procedure.
Another interesting thing to consider is that if a man lets his prostate get very enlarged without seeking treatment, and only comes to treatment when he has finally gone into retention ( ie his bladder has just quit and he needed to go to the emergency room to have a catheter placed to drain it ), he may find his bladder permanently ruined, unable to ever return to normal voiding. Though the PVP can remove the blockage, his voiding will never be forceful, and his frequency will never resolve. Any procedure under those conditions will merely make him catheter free. That is the best outcome he can hope for. This argues in favor of early treatment, or, at least, not failing to treat enlargement when it is recognized. Hopefully, once patients learn PVP is minimally invasive and very effective, they will no longer delay needed treatment and "ruined bladder" scenarios will be a thing of the past.
Since PVP is so minimally invasive and very effective, it would be nice for patients to know that treatment of big prostates should not be avoided and scenarios like the "ruined " bladder are easily completely avoided.
