    I am interested in looking at this procedure since my prostate has grown to 120g. I can still function but take 250 mg of tamsulosin ( flomax) twice a day and 2.5 mg of cialis each day. I will be 70 in August and will need this or another procedure probably in the next year. I live in Jacksonville Florida.
    I am a retired school educator and will have to pay for this procedure myself and would like to know the general cost and do you know of any places in the USA that does this procedure.
    thanks.
