Hello There. I can understand your concern. if your question is if tamsulosin leads to cancer, then i would say "NO". but in people with BPH, not all develop prostate cancer. you need to go for regular checkups to see your current status. i would suggest you continue your medications and consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
