prostate stone

  I am being treated for an 8 mm prostate stone with the medication, Cardura.  Are there any nonsurgical or dietary ways I can shrink or remove this stone?  Thank you
Dear RickP
Thanks for your question.
Prostate stones are usually  asymptotic and not need any treatment. They are found incidentally on transrectal ultrasound.  They need treatment only  if they become infected, because the bacteria can not be eradicated from the stone with removing it.  They rarely can protrude into the lumen of the urethra and cause obstructive symptoms.    The only treatment I am aware of is surgical.  No medications/ foods  can dissolve the stone reliably  to date.  
More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its urban campuses by calling  (1 800 653 6568). We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need. Please bring any physicians
