Benign Prostate Birmingham

Prostate glands grow slowly throughout life. With increasing size the likelihood of bothersome urinary symptoms rises. A larger prostate can lead to symptoms such as reduced urinary flow rate, a sense of urinary urgency and needing to get up to void at night.

In more severe cases an enlarged prostate can lead to complications such as recurrent urinary infections, bladder stones, blood in the urine, urinary retention (inability to void) and even kidney damage.

Operation Benign prostate

Troublesome urinary signs and symptoms are usually initially treated with medications which either relax the prostate or shrink the prostate. These types of medications are effective in most men. If the drugs are not effective or there are other difficulties of prostatic enlargement then surgery to relieve the obstructions will be recommended.

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate is a minimally invasive treatment method, which removes the obstructing section of the prostate gland.

The majority of men stay in hospital for one to two nights following this surgery.
