Prostiva & Olympus Button

BPH is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that causes progressive difficulty with urination. The enlargement process begins during age 30-40, but typically develops so slowly that manifestations of the condition do not begin to cause problems until their late 50’s-60’s. Treatment is recommended when the voiding dysfunction is significant enough to affect the quality of life.

Treatment options include:

  • Medical Therapy (MEDICATIONS or watchful waiting)
  • Thermotherapy
  • Surgical removal including turp
  • Laser procedures to vaporize or resect the enlarge prostate.
