STEP 2: TAKE THE BPH TREATMENT REVIEW

Only your doctor can tell you if treatment for BPH is a good idea. And only you and your doctor can know what is the best treatment choice for you. However, the BPH Treatment Review can help point you in the right treatment direction. You must first have taken the Symptom Quiz and received a symptom score to take this Treatment Review.

BPH TREATMENT REVIEW

Review the following treatment choices by symptom score and click on the treatment that interests you.

BPH Mild Symptom Score (0-7)

If you have a mild symptom score on the Symptom Quiz, then you have the choice of: watchful waiting; medications (pills); and office-based minimally invasive treatments (MITs). Which one is best for you? The answer depends on what you want.

BPH Severe Symptom Score (20-35)

If you want:

  • daily medication, then drug therapy (pills) may be best for you.
  • a procedure performed in your doctor’s office, then office-based minimally invasive treatments (MITs) may be best for you.
  • an increasingly popular surgical procedure that may offer immediate symptom relief, then laser surgery may be best for you. All laser surgeries require anesthesia.
  • the standard surgical procedure (also known as transurethral resection of the prostate or T.U.R.P.) that is effective and has a long history, but typically requires general anesthesia, the use of a catheter (tube for urinating) for several days and an extended recovery, then traditional surgery may be best for you.
