Prostate Disease

Overview

Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH): After the age of 50 or so, many men experience prostate enlargement. The enlargement is known as BPH. Having BPH doesn't mean you're any more or less likely to develop prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate may interfere with urine flow. 

Treatments

There are three main treatment options for BPH:

  • Monitoring or "watchful waiting"
  • Medication
  • Surgery
  • Standard TURP
  • Green light KTP Laser
  • Thermotherapy
  • Microwave
  • Indigo Laser
