Frequently Asked Questions
Can an enlarged prostate be cured?
For most patients, BPH (enlarged prostate) is curable. Some people see a significant reduction in symptoms with medication alone. If medicine does not work, or your prostate is too large, surgery will often remove enough of the prostate to provide you with relief.
What are the warning signs and symptoms of BPH?
- Weak urine flow
- Difficulty starting urination
- Dribbling of urine, especially after urinating
- Sense of not fully emptying the bladder
- Frequent urination and a strong and sudden desire to urinate, especially at night
- Blood in the urine
What happens if you leave an enlarged prostate untreated?
Left untreated, an enlarged prostate can lead to a sudden inability to urinate and cause urinary tract infections and bladder or kidney damage.
