Enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a common condition that affects many older men. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body) and can grow in size over time, causing various urinary symptoms. Treatment for an enlarged prostate can range from lifestyle changes to medical therapies and surgical procedures.
The choice of treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms, the size of your prostate, your overall health, and your preferences. It's important to consult with a urologist who can assess your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment option for you. Regular follow-up visits are typically required to monitor your progress and adjust treatment as needed.
