I have had an enlarged prostate for over 6 years. Recently I read how electro-stimulation can reduce the size of your prostate. I bought a small bullet shaped device, hooked it up to my TENS unit and use it about once a week. I had a prostate exam last week and doctor said my prostate had reduced in size to small. I am trying to find research on this type of treatment.

I have been suffering from this enlarged prostate since 3 or 4 years. I am taking medicine regularly, but since last few days I have been suffering with all the symptoms, i.e., frequently urinating in the night, starting with pain and ending with pain, and feel as if I want to urinate again.
