If you feel discomfort or pressure in your lower abdomen you may be experiencing bladder pressure due to BPH.
If you find yourself going to the bathroom more than normal, with less time in between visits you may have frequent urination due to BPH.
The most common symptom of BPH is urinary urgency, when you feel a strong urge to go, but have difficulty holding it to get to the bathroom.
Untreated BPH can cause urinary retention, which is the inability to urinate or empty the bladder. Even when you strain to urinate, nothing comes out.
Frequent Urination at Night
BPH may cause frequent urination at night, feeling the need to urinate more often or more urgently at night.
BPH may cause intermittent urination where you may experience a weak urination stream or difficulty urinating.
We Offer a Minimally Invasive Treatment for an Enlarged Prostate
PAE is a safe and effective treatment option for men with BPH and, like other minimally invasive procedures, offers several advantages over traditional surgery. The average prostate size is seen to shrink by approximately 30%. PAE is an outpatient procedure, with no hospital stay and a shorter recovery. There is a low risk of sexual side effects or incontinence. You will experience virtually no blood loss and minimal pain and swelling. There are no limits on prostate size, urethral narrowing, or bladder capacity.
