There are multiple calcifications, two lesions of 18 x 12 mm and 22 x 15 mm, with increased vascularity in the tumor area. Residual urine is 156 cc.
Treatment and conclusion:
The patient refused to take conventional treatment and underwent alternative treatments comprised of natural supplements. May 18, 2007, Doppler Color sonogram reported a change from high vascularity to low vascularity and a decrease in residual urine from 156 cc to 130 cc. The size of the lesions remained unchanged. The patient reported that clinically his night urination decreased from 3 or 4 times a night to 1 or 2 times a night. Further investigation by a different sonogram technician confirmed the patient's improvement and suggested a follow-up procedure in 6 months of PSA blood counts.
