What are the Treatment Options for BPH?
Have you been diagnosed with BPH? Is your inability to urinate freely impacting your quality of life? While an enlarged prostate may be inevitable as you get older, there is always something you can do about it.
Treatment options range from noninvasive behavior modification and watchful waiting to medications, minimally invasive procedures and surgery. Which is best for you? It all depends on the amount of discomfort you’re in, your age, health, the size of your prostate and your post-procedure expectations.
Take our BPH Quiz to gauge your readiness for treatment. And share the results – and your concerns – with your doctor to decide on the best option for you. Looking for a BPH specialist? Use our Specialist Finder.
