Enlarged Prostate – BPH
An enlarged prostate is usually due to BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and is one of the most common conditions in middle-aged and elderly men.
Some of the symptoms are:
- a decrease of the urinary stream, waking up in order to empty the bladder,
- sometimes urgency, and
- most frequently – dribbling after urination.
If treatments fail to improve a patient’s complaints, surgery can solve the problem by removing the excess prostate tissue and leaving the outer prostate in place. This procedure is called a transurethral resection prostatectomy (TURP).
This is not the same as a standard prostatectomy (surgical removal of the prostate gland) sometimes used in cases of prostate cancer.
