What is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)?
Benign prostate enlargement, also called benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), is an increase in the size of the prostate gland, as a result of an increase in the number of cells present. BPH is a common condition among men over the age of 50.
Symptoms of BPH can include:
- Blocked urine flow
- Difficulty urinating
- Frequent urinary urges
- Urinary tract infections
- Formation of stones in the bladder
- Reduced kidney function
How is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) treated?
At Guthrie, our urology specialists provide the latest treatment options for BPH.
- Alpha blockers
- Urolift – lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra
- Rezum – water vapor therapy to treat excess prostate tissue
Minimally invasive surgery:
- Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) to remove prostate tissue
- Transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP) to open a channel in the urethra through which urine can more easily travel
- Photo-selective vaporization of the prostate using green light laser
- Retropubic Prostatectomy
