Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Treatments

Treatment for BPH depends on the severity of symptoms. Mild cases may be treated with watchful waiting and patients with moderate to severe symptoms may be prescribed medications to treat the underlying physical causes of BPH and to alleviate symptoms. Minimally invasive surgical procedures are often recommended for patients with severe symptoms, including urinary retention, gross hematuria, bladder stones and urinary tract infection.
