Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a mainly benign condition in which the prostate is enlarged and makes urination difficult. BPH is an age related condition as the prostate becomes larger as men age.
BPH can result in symptoms such as waking up at night to urinate, feeling urgency to urinate, and difficulty starting to urinate. Men who have a family history of enlarged prostates are at a higher risk for BPH. Men begin prostate cancer screenings at 55 years old, where a digital rectal exam is done to feel the prostate and examine the size. Treatment options for BPH include: oral medications, laser therapy, Rezum Water Vapor Therapy and surgical procedures such as Transurethral Resection of The Prostate (TURP).
Rezum Water Vapor Therapy
Rezum Water Vapor Therapy is a short, in-office procedure which reduces the size of the prostate to provide symptom relief for BPH. Rezum Water Vapor Therapy is an alternative treatment without side effects from prescription medication or invasive surgery. The procedure preserves sexual function and has been proven to eliminate need for BPH medications and reduce symptoms for up to 5 years.
