I am 80 years old. I have had since 2010 4 TURP operations resulting in a further 3 bladder neck operations. My prostate [BPH] is strangling my urethra again. If I live that long I can look forward to many such operations being needed. Multi visits to the toilet over night, dribble, delays and week flow. Is testosterone the reason for the growth of my Prostate, if so can I seek chemical or even surgical castration. Surely without testosterone the Prostate cannot grow. I think I would like to start a course of chemical castration treatment even if only to ascertain it reducing the Benign Prostate. It may not be permanent? David

In the USA, I doubt if a doctor would agree unless you probably knew the doctor personally. However, I am a healthy male who decided to chemically castrate myself 7 years ago. I am happy with my decision. I would physically castrate but I love my large testicles. However, I personally a male should physically be castrated at the latest at age 40 and preferably between 30 and 35. He should be chemically castrated in the teen years and continue until physical castration.

Very interesting. A part from the criminals there are plenty of married or single men, who contemplate chemical castration to lower theirs libidos and there fore theirs sexual frustrations. I wonder if there are differences for theirs effectiveness and also theirs side effects, between the different drugs used for chemical castration. Which one would be more cost effective? Is it possible that after many years that a man may never produce testosterone again when he stops chemical castration? If so how long can he use it before he reaches the point of no return? Is there a difference in effects and side effects between chemical and physical castration? If everything goes well and the man is comfortable with his chemical castration, how long should a man wait before considering physical castration? Would doctors agree to to remove healthy testicles following an extended time on chemical castration? I'd appreciate some answers. Thank
