Answer
Howard

Antibiotic prophylaxis is not usually given fir UTIs due to an enlarged prostate. This only leads to more resistant infections. Yheyer@edap-usa.com recommended treatment is therapy for the enlarged prostate, either medication or surgery. We also check for other related causes like stones.
