Prostate gland is responsible for producing the fluid that delivers sperm during ejaculation, it surrounds the urethra which urine exits the body.
Prostatic Hyperplasia is a condition in which the prostate gland is enlarged to an abnormal size which can be a common symptom for men. The prostate typically grows continuously throughout a man's life. This persistent growth causes the prostate to expand in many men to the point where it causes symptoms or considerably obstructs urine flow.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia means it is not cancerous & the several symptoms one can experience are the urinary tract, inflammation of the prostate, narrowing of the urethra, scarring, nerve issues, kidney problems, urine urgency, dribbling, blood, and nocturia.
Enlarged prostate can be treated in several ways such as medications, minimally invasive treatment (Urolift procedure), or (Rezum procedure) surgery depending on the symptoms, size, and other health conditions.
The severity of your symptoms is not always influenced by the size of your prostate. While some men with significantly enlarged prostates may only experience slightly urinary symptoms, other men with only mildly enlarged prostates may experience considerable difficulties.
Risk factors for Prostatic Hyperplasia:
• Family history
• Diabetes and heart disease
Urolift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way, so it no longer blocks the urethra, relieves urinary symptoms, and uses small implants that hold back obstructing prostate tissue. It will immediately help in:
• Preservation of sexual function
• Return to normal activity within days
• Increased quality of life
Rezum, also known as convective radiofrequency water vapor thermal therapy, is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates extra prostate tissue that is pressing on the urethra and causing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and other urinary problems by exploiting the inherent energy contained in steam.
As a result, the prostate shrinks, the urethra opens, and urine flows freely. Over a course of period, the treated area heals naturally, and the patients can resume their daily activities. Most patients experience significant improvement in their BPH symptoms within one to three months after the procedure.
