Bladder Cancer - Fix Page
BPH means your prostate is enlarged, but is not cancerous. It is very common in virtually all over age 50. An enlarged prostate may make it very difficult to urinate or cause dribbling after you urinate. You may feel the need to urinate a lot, often at night.
Treatments for BPH include:
Active surveillance. If your symptoms are not too bad, your doctor may tell you to wait before starting any treatment to see if the problem gets worse. The PeeDocs will tell you how often you need to return for checkups. You can start treatment later if your symptoms worsen.
Complimentary Treatments: These are supplements many consider natural treatments. Prostate health is a blend of important vitamins, minerals, amino acids, plant sterols and herbs that work synergistically to maintain a healthy prostate.
Medications. There are medicines that can help shrink the prostate or help relax muscles near your prostate to ease your symptoms. Talk with the PeeDocs about possible side effects.
Surgery. If nothing else has worked, your doctor may suggest surgery to help urine flow. There are many types of BPH surgery. Talk with the PeeDocs about the risks. Regular checkups are important after surgery.
Other treatments. Sometimes radio waves, microwaves, or lasers are used to treat urinary problems caused by BPH. These methods use different kinds of heat to reduce extra prostate tissue.
