About Enlarged Prostate - BPH

Enlarged Prostate - BPH, also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, is a common condition that affects men as they age. The prostate gland, which is responsible for producing seminal fluid, gradually enlarges over time, leading to a range of urinary symptoms. While it is a non-cancerous condition, it can significantly impact a man's quality of life.

As the prostate enlarges, it can put pressure on the urethra, causing urinary problems such as frequent urination, weak urine flow, difficulty starting and stopping urination, and the feeling of incomplete bladder emptying. These symptoms can be bothersome and affect daily activities and overall well-being.

Expert Treatment at Tower Urology

When it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of Enlarged Prostate - BPH, you can trust the expertise of our urologists at Tower Urology, Los Angeles. We offer a wide range of advanced diagnostic tools and treatment options to effectively manage this condition and provide relief from bothersome symptoms.

Comprehensive Evaluation

Our urologists will begin with a thorough evaluation of your medical history and perform a comprehensive physical examination. We may also recommend additional tests, such as:

  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test: This test measures the level of a protein produced by the prostate. Elevated PSA levels may indicate an enlarged prostate.
  • Urine flow study: This test measures the speed and amount of urine flow to assess the severity of urinary symptoms.
  • Transrectal ultrasound: This imaging test provides detailed images of the prostate gland to assess its size and detect any abnormalities.
  • Cystoscopy: A thin, flexible tube with a camera is inserted through the urethra to examine the prostate and urinary tract for any abnormalities or blockages.

Personalized Treatment Plans

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our urologists will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The goal of treatment is to alleviate symptoms, improve urinary function, and enhance your overall quality of life. Treatment options may include:

  • Medications: Various medications can help relax the muscles of the prostate gland and improve urinary flow. Our urologists will prescribe the most suitable medication based on your individual condition.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: We offer advanced minimally invasive procedures, such as Transurethral Microwave Therapy (TUMT), Transurethral Needle Ablation (TUNA), and Water-Induced Thermotherapy (WIT), which provide effective symptom relief with minimal downtime.
  • Surgical Treatments: In cases where symptoms are severe or other treatments have failed, surgical options such as Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) or Laser Prostatectomy may be recommended.
