Welcome to our Urology Clinic’s informative page on Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition affecting men, particularly as they age. Our dedicated team of urologists is here to provide you with essential information, guidance, and support on managing this condition.

Understanding Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Problem

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, refers to the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized organ located just below the bladder. This enlargement can lead to various urinary symptoms, impacting the quality of life for many men.

Symptoms of BPH

    1. Frequent Urination: An enlarged prostate can put pressure on the urethra, leading to increased frequency of urination.
    2. Urgency: BPH may cause a sudden, compelling need to urinate, making it difficult to delay bathroom visits.
    3. Weak Stream: The flow of urine may become weaker due to the obstruction caused by the enlarged prostate.
    4. Incomplete Emptying: Some men with BPH experience the sensation that their bladder is not entirely emptied after urination.
    5. Nocturia: Increased urination at night, disrupting sleep patterns.

Diagnosis and Evaluation

If you are experiencing symptoms of BPH, it is essential to seek professional medical advice. Our urologists employ a thorough approach to diagnosis, including:

    1. Medical History: Understanding your overall health and any pre-existing conditions.
    2. Physical Examination: A physical examination of the prostate to assess its size and detect any abnormalities.
    3. Digital Rectal Examination (DRE): A common procedure to evaluate the size and texture of the prostate.
    4. Urinalysis: To rule out other potential causes of urinary symptoms.
    5. Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Test: A blood test to screen for prostate cancer.

Treatment Options

Our urologists will tailor a treatment plan based on the severity of your symptoms, overall health, and personal preferences. Treatment options may include:

    1. Watchful Waiting: Monitoring symptoms without immediate intervention.
    2. Medications: Prescription medications to relieve symptoms and reduce the size of the prostate.
    3. Minimally Invasive Therapies: Procedures such as transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT) or laser therapy.
    4. Surgery: In more severe cases, surgical interventions like transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) may be recommended.

Lifestyle Management

In addition to medical interventions, our urologists emphasize the importance of lifestyle modifications, including:

    1. Fluid Management: Monitoring and adjusting fluid intake, especially in the evening.
    2. Bladder Training: Techniques to improve bladder control.
    3. Pelvic Floor Exercises: Strengthening pelvic floor muscles for better urinary control.
