Consume a fresh

In traditional medicine there are the following principles of treatment of BPH :

  • medication;
  • operational;
  • non-operational.

The drug treatment involves symptomatic (that is, aimed at the suppression of basic symptoms) and etiological (that is, aimed at the eradication of the problem) treatment. Symptomatic treatment includes the prescribing, relieving the main symptoms of the adenoma.

Etiological treatment is a prescription of specific drugs, blockers 5-α-reductase. The essence of their actions in blocking the conversion of testosterone to its active form — dihydrotestosterone. The less the body dihydrotestosterone, the less the volume of the prostate gland.

For surgical treatment applies only one— prostatectomy. The method consists in a full radical removal of the prostate gland. The most effective method of all available to date, however, most patients refuse to use it for purely emotional reasons.

To non-surgical methods include such treatments as:

  • MVK (microwave coagulation) of the prostate, the use of microwaves for the removal of the damaged parts of the prostate. Is usually done under control of ultrasound device.
  • cryosurgery – the use of low temperatures for heat coagulation of a selected area of the prostate.
  • HIFU-therapy is the use of ultrasound for the destruction of parts of the prostate. A huge plus of this method is that when using it there is no damage of healthy tissue.
  • stents installation (expanders) in the area that was subjected to obstruction. This method relieves some symptoms, but not fighting the main problem.
  • dilatation of the prostate by inflating a balloon which is introduced into the urethra. This method also does not affect the cause of the disease, so it is advisable its use in combination with any other treatment.


As with any other disease, the success of the treatment depends on what stage of the disease the patient will complain to the doctor.

Remember, the sooner you consult your doctor, read more than explain the symptoms that bother you, the greater the effect the treatment will have and the less the likelihood of complications.
