To choose the best option, you and your doctor will consider your symptoms, the size of your prostate, other health conditions you might have, and your preferences.
The primary categories of treatment options are:
MIST procedures can be done without general anaesthesia or a hospital stay. Minimally invasive therapies are increasingly available and recommended when possible as an alternative to the risks of surgery.
HoLEP (Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate)
In some cases, no active treatment may be the recommended option. If a man has minimal bothersome symptoms from his enlarged prostate the doctor may recommend “watchful waiting”, perhaps combined with lifestyle factors like diet and exercise.
