Symptom Improvement and Transrectal Ultrasound-Documented Reduction of Prostate Size after Repetitive Prostatic Massage and Antimicrobial Therapy
A 78-year-old man with an enlarged prostate complaining of urinary symptoms was treated with 10 prostatic massages combined with antibiotics. The patient was asked to assign a global symptom score to his symptoms throughout the 16- day treatment period. A 10-point scoring system was used, with 10 representing the most severe symptoms. The patient’s global symptom score fell from 5 before treatment to less than 1 after treatment. His prostate was markedly reduced in size per palpation, and his prostate volume decreased by 52%, from 63 g to 30 g, as measured by transrectal ultrasound. This case report demonstrates that repetitive prostatic massage plus antibiotic therapy was effective in alleviating one man’s chronic pelvic symptoms, while decreasing the size of his prostate as measured by transrectal ultrasound.
