— Prostate Growth Treatment with Greenlight Laser
Benign prostatic hyperplasia
(enlarged prostate) What is it?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate, which is the diaper that carries the sperm during excretion.
An enlarged prostate often adversely affects the functions of the urine by lifting it to the toilet and abducting sleep.
But you don’t have to live with BPH. Start exploring your treatment options.
Why BPH occurs?
Prostate growth occurs naturally as a male gets older. However, no one knows exactly why this situation occurred; but it is one of the common diseases among older men.
Who is affected?
Almost half of men aged 51-60 years and 90% of men aged 80.2 years are affected by BPH.
Every year more than 27 million men over the age of 50 are affected by BPH in the US.
About 95% of men with moderate symptoms are unhappy; they don’t want to spend the rest of their lives with these symptoms.
If BPH is left untreated, it may lead to infection-related complications, kidney failure and urine, bladder or kidney stones.
What are the symptoms?
An enlarged prostate compresses the urethra (the tube that carries the urine from the bladder), which can cause many problems. You can do this symptom test to understand the degree of your condition and talk to your doctor about your answers. Symptoms:
- Frequent urination on day and/or night
- Multiple jam status
- Feeling of burning and pain when doing urine
- Poor urine flow
- The feeling that the bladder has not emptied after doing urine
- Inability to urinate
- Problem of urinary flow discontinuation
What are the treatment options?
You and your doctor can work together to apply a treatment plan by considering your situation in detail. Understand all available options; It is very important that you share your thoughts and concerns with your doctor.
If the symptoms are mild, doctors may suggest a ın watch and wait ist approach by asking families to follow their symptoms before monitoring other treatment options. At the same time, the physician may recommend lifestyle changes, such as diet, evening fluid intake, medication use, and exercise patterns.
Alpha reduction inhibitors tend to reduce the prostate gland, whereas alpha blockers ease urination around the bladder neck. In some cases, certain side effects and prescription drug costs make it a less preferred option.
Minimally Invasive Therapy
This category includes three options:
The first, microwave and heat therapies (TUMT) – use microwave or heat energy to reduce symptoms. Laser therapy removes prostate tissue that does not work with high energy lasers. Transurethral prostate resection (TURP) uses an overheated thin metal tool to cut and remove tissue.
Open prostatectomy removes the inside of the prostate through a suprapubic or retropubic incision in the lower abdominal region.
