Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

TREATMENT

Therapies can be administered when worsening symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy impact on the patient's quality of life. These can be pharmacological or, in the most serious cases, even surgical, using very innovative techniques. The support of a doctor is essential during the evolution of the condition, to suggest the best course to follow and identify a treatment that is both efficacious and acceptable to the patient. The most important step is the first visit to the urology clinic to assess the primary situation and degree of disease advancement.
