What is UroLift?

What is BPH?

As men age, it is very common for their prostate to continue growing larger, which will often cause issues between age 50 and 60, and beyond.

An enlarged prostate is medically known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. This condition describes a prostate that has grown large enough to exceed its natural boundaries and begin to push down on the urethra.

How is BPH Diagnosed?

Men typically have the health of their prostate evaluated during yearly physical examinations with their physician. This simple screening is often able to detect superficial abnormalities of the prostate, such as unusually large sizing.

Patients who schedule a consultation with  Dr. Michael Hyman regarding BPH will begin by thoroughly discussing their symptoms, personal medical history, and family medical history. A physical evaluation is often performed as well, and additional diagnostic tests may be ordered to analyze the functionality of the patient’s urinary system.
