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.
