Urology/cysts development


greeting dr stephen
i appreciate your answer

please, do you think my prostate congestion can facilitate cysts formation?.. how can i prevent it ?   

and what natural remedies can dissolve kidney stones without a side effect on fertility? :)

have a good day dr.


I'm not really sure what "prostate congestion" is.  It is not a medical diagnosis.  We have enlargement, cancer, infection and inflammation but not "congestion".  It is supposed to suggest excess fluid in the prostate causing voiding issues, but this really doesn't happen unless there is pre-existing infection and/or enlargement.

Cysts in the prostate are relatively uncommon.  The best way to avoid them is to have any prostate disorders treated.

There are no natural remedies to dissolve kidney stones. In some cases of pure uric acid stones, you can dissolve them with Potassium citrate or sodium bicarbonate which alkalinize the urine.  But most stones are calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate and are literally rock hard.  There are no natural remedies or medications that will dissolve these; they either have to pass by themselves or be surgically treated by a urologist.
