I have used finasteride (Proscar) to treat my BPH, and it has reduced the size of my prostate. However, my body’s production of semen has diminished, too. Will switching to dutasteride (Avodart) solve that problem?
Marc Garnick, M.D., Editor in Chief of the Annual Report on Prostate Diseases, discusses what you need to know about therapy: when it’s used, what your options are, and what doctors disagree about.
When it comes to early-stage prostate cancer, there is no evidence that one treatment is better than another or that any treatment at all actually prolongs life. If you are diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer, you’ll want to consider factors such as your values, your quality of life, and the potential side effects of various treatments before making a decision.
