Hello,bladder wrack contain iodine ,it is not usually recommend because It may contain high concentrations of iodine, which could cause or worsen some thyroid problems. Prolonged, high intake of dietary iodine is linked with goiter and increased risk of thyroid cancer.There are other medicines which decreases blood flow to prostate and shrink its size.Consult general surgeon
