BPH Therapies

 

BPH therapies can be divided between medical or surgical. The start of medical therapy for BPH depends mainly on the bother caused by the urinary symptoms. Surgical therapy is used when medical therapy is not sufficient to minimise the symptoms or in one of these cases: Kidney failure, chronic or repetitive bladder obstruction, frequent urinary infections, hematuria (blood in the urine), bladder stones.
