The prostate gland is enlarged in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH becomes common as men get older. The prostate is a tiny gland that is initially the size of a walnut. The gland enlarges as males become older.
Other than the change in size, almost 50% of men with the illness show no symptoms. Others may experience urinary and sexual disorders, such as obstructed urine flow, which can lead to bladder, urinary tract, or kidney problems.
Your prostate covers a portion of the urethra, the tube that drains urine and sperm from your penis. When you have BPH, your prostate becomes bigger than usual, compressing the urethra. This might cause your urine stream to be weak, causing you to get up frequently at night to use the restroom. It may also cause other uncomfortable urinary symptoms. Your prostate is bigger than usual when you have BPH. The urethra might be squeezed by the big prostate.
BPH is a common health concern with several treatments ranging from lifestyle modifications to medicine to surgery. Your doctor can advise you on the best course of action based on your age, health, and how the problem affects you.
Rezm water vapour therapy is a new, safe, and effective BPH treatment that can provide long-term relief without the dangers and inconvenience of surgery.
The therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for an enlarged prostate that uses controlled doses of hot steam to directly ablate and reduce portions of the swollen prostate that are causing obstruction of the urethra.
Rezūm has undergone rigorous studies and is recommended by the Canadian Urological Association as a minimally invasive BPH symptom reduction method for men interested in preserving erectile and ejaculatory function.
