Please let us know more, including his age and examples of the circumstances in which he displays this behavior, as well as a good description of how he's acting. Then maybe folks here can help!
Best of luck,

if a dog is being aggressive because of fear removing his hormones can make him less confident and more aggressive
or if he has already learnt aggression as a habit then training is needed rather than surgery
if he is frustraied and wants to play neutering will do nothing
too many variables - as the others said we need details

Try counter conditioning for the reactivity and wait until the dog is about 18 mos to neuter.

Do NOT neuter him during a fear period.

One thing I did that I think helped was -I started walking him on a leash at a dog park on a path where I knew I would be passing other dogs on leashes. On the dog path I would walk him toward other people with their dog on a leash, let him sniff the dog for 2 seconds and keep walking straight pastó sometimes he would growl but I'd just keep walking as if it was nothing- then I would do some heal work on the leash, make him walk forward backward with me and give him a treat. After doing that same thing over and over for 2 months- he started to just walk past other dogs without lunging or growling. If other people had dogs his size that were not on a leash- and their dog ran up to my dog- I would just drop the leash- because pulling on the leash would make him crazy- so I just started dropping the leash. Sometimes he would jump on the other dog and try to pin it in an aggressive way- but it always turned into play- like play fighting- he's never really gotten in a fight and by now he's played with 100s of dogs- so I don't think he really ever wanted to fight.
