Cysts within the prostate may be treated with medications; however, your veterinarian may recommend castration as a way of resolving the condition and preventing future occurrences. Large cysts may need to be drained with ultrasound guidance prior to medication, while some cysts may need to be removed surgically.
Following treatment, your veterinarian will want to check on the progress of the cysts by examining the prostrate, using ultrasound or x-ray imaging. After the initial treatment, your doctor will evaluate the size of the cysts at four week intervals.
