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.

Medication:

  • Alpha blockers
  • Inhibitors

Office-based  procedures:

  • 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
  • Stents

Surgical treatments:

  • Retropubic Prostatectomy

Our urology team diagnoses and treats men, women and children with urinary tract issues. The urinary system (or renal system) is the producer of urine (pee). We also treat men with issues of the male reproductive system
