Benign Prostate Hyerplasia (BPH)
An enlarging prostate is a common, benign condition that develops as men age. Symptoms include slowing of urinary flow, not feeling empty after urination, urinary frequency throughout the day, and awakened at night with a need to urinate. Tools that evaluate urinary symptoms can be found here: IPSS Score
Many effective medications are available to treat BPH. For those men that require something beyond medications a variety of surgical options exist. The gold standard remains the transurethral resection of the prostate. Appropriate treatment of BPH can be discussed both with your family doctor or urologist.
