BPH is a problem affecting prostate gland. Herein the prostate gland becomes enlarged with the advancing age as it is positioned just below urinary bladder neck sometimes causing squeezing of urethra while abutting it all around leading to disruption in normal urination. Obstruction of urethra might lead to complications like retention of urine, recurrent Hematuria, recurrent infections, urinary bladder stones and rarely chronic renal failure with bladder dysfunction. Percentage of men over age of 50 years increases with each decade due to growth and enlargement of prostate gland. It is widely diagnosed through careful history of symptoms like daytime and nighttime frequency along with difficulty in passing urine, clinical examination and Ultra-sound of prostate gland.Q.2. What are all the treatment options for BPH, and when should one seek help? How will delay in treatment or diagnosis affect a patient?
Alpha blockers and 5- alpha dihydrotestosterone therapy seems to be medication alternative to treat the mild to moderate symptomatic cases of BPH. Combination of two is also commonly used depending on size of prostate gland on ultrasound. Further surgical intervention including laser treatment and transurethral intervention form part of surgical practice to deal with seriousness of benign prostate hyperplasia. BPH can hurt urinary bladder and sometimes kidneys. Seeking doctor's help is most important. Early treatment can prevent problems.Q.3. How has the treatment of BPH changed with advancement in medicine and technology?
With the advancement of technology, painless laser treatment is now available to treat BPH cases among the patients. Also advance alpha blockers such as Alfuzosin, Tamsulosin and Silodosin seem to be better alternative to treat BPH nowadays. If BPH is severe, healthcare provider may advise surgery. Surgery takes out enlarged parts of the prostate gland. Advances in medicine and surgery can figure out the best option based on the age, overall health, and other factors.Q.4. How can a patient learn to live with BPH? And can BPH become cancerous or lead to other serious illness?
BPH and prostate cancer share some symptoms. That's why it's important to talk with doctor about symptoms. BPH symptoms often may get worse as the prostate grows. Lifestyle modifications may also help. Patients can manage BPH through medication like alpha blockers, and can get treated via surgical intervention such as painless laser treatment. Men with BPH aren't more likely to develop this cancer. But they may have higher levels of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA). A higher PSA level may also be a sign of prostate cancer. Certain tests help tell BPH from prostate cancer. They include prostate ultrasound and biopsy.
