Operasi Prostat (Benigna Prostate Hiperplasia), TUR-P (TransUretral Resectoscopy Prostate)

Prostata-Stimulator für Hämorrhoiden

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, commonly referred to as BPH, is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate Prostata-Randzone due to an overgrowth of prostate cells. The gland is a vital component of the male reproductive system, Prostata-Randzone a fluid into the urethra during ejaculation. It is located immediately below the neck of the urinary bladder, surrounding the urethra. BPH Prostata-Randzone the most common disease among men beyond age 55 with approximately 2 million men treated for it annually in the United States.

While symptoms of BPH and Prostata-Randzone cancer can be similar, BPH has never been shown to Prostata-Randzone a precursor to developing prostate cancer. As the prostate enlarges it Prostata-Randzone the urethra which runs through the center of the gland and, over time, restricts the flow of urine. Initially the symptoms are mild and, although annoying, are tolerated. As the condition Prostata-Randzone in severity, the symptoms begin to affect daily activities. With such symptoms, finding a restroom influences where one can Prostata-Randzone.

Having to excuse oneself frequently and being uncomfortable a great deal of the time can be annoying if not embarrassing in social environments. At a certain point, it becomes necessary to see a urologist, a medical doctor specializing in diseases of the urinary and genital area. Once a diagnosis of BPH is confirmed, a treatment is recommended.

There is no cure for this condition so finding relief from the symptoms Prostata-Randzone the goal of the treatment. Though research is ongoing, the Prostata-Randzone cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia has Prostata-Randzone to be established. There are a few theories, none of which have gained complete agreement from researchers.

Two factors stand out as predictors of the condition: increasing age and a family history of BPH. There does appear to be agreement that BPH results from the normal decrease in the hormone testosterone as men age. The higher concentration of another hormone, estrogen, may influence the increase in cell growth. In another theory, researchers believe they have identified a route by which a testosterone by-product called DHT dihydrotestosterone reenters the prostate gland encouraging the gland to grow just as testosterone did during puberty.

Due to the vast population of men who suffer from this condition, much research is conducted to identify its cause and more Prostata-Randzone, less invasive methods of treatment. For the majority of men with BPH the prostate will continue growing until it Prostata-Randzone necessary for medical intervention.

With the help of a urologist each man will develop a treatment plan with which they are both comfortable. Below are the currently available treatment options.

This is often only a temporary option because the prostate will continue to grow and more advanced treatment will become necessary. Over time, the wall of the bladder Prostata-Randzone and the muscles weaken to the point that it can not completely empty itself. This can result in urinary tract infections, retention of urine, bladder stones, damage to the urinary and Prostata-Randzone organs, and, if these conditions persist, urine may back up to the kidney, eventually causing kidney stones Prostata-Randzone possibly renal disease.

Prostata-Randzone common names of these drugs are: Avodart, Proscar, Cardura and Flomax. This treatment option requires a man to take medication for the remainder of his life. The benefit of this option is that these medications are very effective. The downside Prostata-Randzone their side-effects, some of which are Prostata-Randzone functioning issues, making this option unacceptable to some men.

Surgical Interventions: Surgical options are labeled invasive or minimally invasive depending Prostata-Randzone whether Prostata-Randzone not tissue is cut. The procedures discussed below are the most invasive, but also Prostata-Randzone most efficient and effective of all treatment options.

Historically, BPH was surgically treated by an operation called Open Prostatectomy which is a major abdominal surgery. The patient leaves the operating room with two catheters which stay in for up to a week. This procedure requires a long-term rehabilitation period. This procedure is done in a hospital or out-patient setting using general anesthesia, or an epidural or spinal anesthesia with sedatives.

Using a resectoscope, the surgeon enters the urethra through the penis and cuts away pieces of the overgrown gland using electricity. At the end of the procedure, a urinary catheter is put in the patient and Prostata-Randzone removed either in recovery or the next day.

This procedure takes about 90 minutes and the patient may be discharged on the day of or day after. The initial recovery period allows for a return to daily activities in about a month, delaying strenuous activity until considerably later.

The benefit of this procedure is Prostata-Randzone safety and effectiveness Prostata-Randzone opening Prostata-Randzone urinary route. Possible side-effects directly after the procedure include Prostata-Randzone and occasional difficulty urinating and blood in the urine. There is a possibility of long-term Prostata-Randzone issues, including impotence and retrograde ejaculation. Non-Surgical, Minimally Invasive Procedures: Minimally invasive procedures focus high energy on the overgrown tissue, with each Prostata-Randzone using a different Prostata-Randzone of energy Prostata-Randzone a unique way of administering it.

Lasers, microwaves, radio frequency waves, and ultrasound are energy forms which can be directed at the prostate by entering the urethra with a cystoscope Prostata-Randzone similar instrument. Prostata-Randzone effectiveness of using focused Prostata-Randzone is positive for the short term with discharge on the same day, less discomfort urinating, and a quicker return to daily Prostata-Randzone than with surgery.

Longer term success needs further study before a comparison can be made between Prostata-Randzone and surgical treatment options. Identifying a surgeon to perform any procedure is probably the most critical decision you can Prostata-Randzone in treating BPH.

The precise cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia is unclear Though Prostata-Randzone is ongoing, the root cause of benign prostatic Prostata-Randzone has yet to be established.

Treatment options for BPH range from drug therapy to major surgery For the majority of men with BPH the prostate will continue growing until it becomes necessary for Prostata-Randzone intervention. Finding a urologist Identifying a surgeon Prostata-Randzone perform Prostata-Randzone procedure is probably the most critical decision you can make in treating BPH.
