Enlarged prostate / BPH

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is having an enlarged prostate. The prostate surrounds the first part of the urethra just below the bladder. An enlarged prostate results in compression of the urethra and ultimately difficulty in emptying your bladder. As men age, prostate enlargement is a natural development, however some men’s prostates will enlarge more than others. Ultimately, most men will visit a physician in their lifetime to discuss their urination. Enlarged prostate symptoms include:

  • Incomplete bladder emptying

  • Weak urine stream

  • Dribbling of urine

  • Trouble starting stream

  • Symptoms of “Can’t wait”

  • Getting up multiple times at night to void

The physicians at Athens Area Urology will evaluate and diagnose your enlarged prostate. In addition to medical therapies, we perform a variety of procedures for benign prostatic hyperplasia.
