An enlarged prostate can be painful and cause a great deal of discomfort. If you’re experiencing difficulty or pain while urinating or having sex, then an enlarged prostate could be the main culprit. Of course, you won’t know until you actually visit a doctor namely Dr Shawn Ahmed for a checkup, but you can still have an idea of whether or not you have an enlarged prostate based on certain symptoms. These may include “stop-start” peeing, needing to urinate frequently and suddenly or even urinary incontinence.
The treatment options for enlarged prostates can vary depending on the severity of the problem and on what your doctor might decide would be a more effective treatment for preventing severe complications. Alpha blockers are usually recommended, since they are able to relax muscle fibers in the bladder and prostate, making urination less difficult.
The problem with medication and natural treatment, however, is that the problem might become recurring. According to most experts, surgery is actually the best long term treatment for an enlarged prostate, as it can eliminate the issue once and for all. Aside from conventional procedures such as TURP and TUIP, laser surgery can also be used to get rid of your enlarged prostate, and you’ll find that advancements in modern medical technology has made it far safer and more affordable than it was in the past.
