Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

About Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia / Enlargement (BPH) commonly affects most men at some point in their lives, with the percentage escalating with age.

“Figures show that by the age of 60, 50% of men will show signs of BPH”

Signs Of An Enlarged Prostate | What Is BPH? | TreatMyBPH, 2020

Roughly half of these men will develop symptoms which will require treatment.

BPH is the most common prostate problem in men, and whilst it is benign, it can have symptoms similar to prostate cancer.

Mild symptoms may require no further treatment than continued observation by a Urologist. For more severe symptoms, there are various treatments on offer:


Surgery such as Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)

Laser Therapy (Green Light™ Laser Therapy)

Minimally Invasive Water Vaper Therapy (Rezūm™ Water Vapor Therapy)
