Prostate Treatment in Hyderabad

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), commonly known as prostate gland enlargement, is a common issue seen in men as they get older. People with benign prostatic hyperplasia often suffer from urinary tract problems, kidney problems, and a block in the flow of urine. Medications, minimally invasive procedures and surgeries are a few of the ways in which benign prostatic hyperplasia can be treated.

Common symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia are the urge to urinate frequently or immediately, difficulty in urinating, an increase in the frequency of urination, dribbling after urinating, and the bladder not emptying entirely. It is important to remember that the severity of your symptoms is not always influenced by the size of your prostate. While some men with significantly enlarged prostates may only experience modest urinary symptoms, other men with only mildly enlarged prostates may experience considerable difficulties.

Doctors use tests like urine test, digital rectal exam, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and blood test to determine if you suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia. Doctors usually recommend a form of treatment based on your age, the size of the enlarged prostate, overall health and the amount of discomfort you are in.

Based on those factors, doctors can suggest medications, minimally invasive procedures or surgery. Experts usually recommend medications like alpha blockers, combination drug therapy and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors.
