Thank you for your question. Etoricoxib is an anti-inflammatory pain medication of the selective COX-2 inhibitor class. It is indicated for the treatment of inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Since this drug acts throughout the body, it can assist in treating the pain associated with an enlarged prostate. However, this medication cannot decrease the size, or treat specific conditions related to the prostate gland.
