Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in men and it is also called Prostate Enlargement.  BPH is a benign condition in which the prostate enlarges and the surrounding tissues grows in size.

The prostate is a gland that is about the size of a walnut and is located below the urinary bladder.  It surrounds the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine out of the body.

As a man ages, the prostate may get larger in size.  Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a condition in which the prostate grows large enough that it squeezes the urethra and causes problems like difficulty urinating.  The bladder wall can become thicker and may lose the ability to empty completely.  Retention of urine in the bladder may result in lower urinary tract symptoms.

BPH requires treatment if it begins to cause symptoms.  It is advisable to consult an urologist if symptoms occur as these symptoms could be indicative of more serious conditions like prostate cancer.

Presently, there is no complete cure or reversal for Prostate Enlargement.  Various treatment measures may be advised for alleviating the symptoms. 

  • Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)
  • Transurethral Incision of Prostate (TUIP)
  • Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy
  • LASER surgery for Prostate
  • Simple Prostatectomy
