Do You Have Any Difficulty While Urinating?

Enlargement of the prostate gland is called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Urethra which carries urine is surrounded by the prostate gland. When the gland gets bigger it blocks the urethra causing difficulties while urinating. Usually, men of all age are prone to this. Benign enlargement is not cancerous. Usually, it is caused by advancing age and cell growth. 

When should you visit a doctor?
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Problems while starting urination
  • Straining while urinating
  • Unable to empty the bladder completely
  • Need to insert force while urinating
  • Need to urinate more at night
  • Blood in the urine
  • Urinary tract infection
Diagnosis of BPH

At first, the doctor will ask about symptoms and do the physical exam which includes Digital rectal exam, urine test, blood test, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and neurological exam. After that doctors will recommend advanced tests like Urinary flow test, Postvoid residual volume test, and 24-hour voiding diary to conform to the condition.

Laser Prostate Surgery

This surgery is used to relieve symptoms caused by the enlargement of the prostate. In surgery, the doctor will insert a scope through the penis into the urethra. Then the laser is passed through the scope to reduce or remove the tissues that are obstructing urine flow. The laser removes tissues through ablation ( melting) or enucleation ( cutting away excess tissue ). Different types of laser surgery are Photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP), Holmium laser ablation of the prostate (HoLAP) and Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP).
