UroLift® for BPH
What is Your Bladder Telling You? Squeeze Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Out of Your Life.
Your body is constantly giving you signals from the growling sound coming from your stomach telling you that it’s time to eat, to your droopy eyelids and constant yawning telling you that it’s time to sleep. What is your bladder trying to tell you?
If you’re experiencing any or several of the following, your bladder may be telling you that something is wrong:
- Needing to urinate constantly
- Difficulty starting
- A weak urination stream
- Not being able to urinate
- Loss of control
There are many difficult aspects of your life that you have to overcome on a daily basis, and urination shouldn’t be one of them. Urinating should not be painful, difficult, or a source of worry.
When urinating is difficult and painful, it can control your life. When going out to a restaurant with your significant other, you may have to keep one eye on them and one eye on the bathroom. A simple trip to the urinal at a sporting event can last several minutes instead of seconds, leaving your friends asking, “What took you so long?” You may even notice some wet spots in your pants due to losing the ability to control your bladder.
Don’t ignore your bladder’s message to your body that it’s time to take action against what may be BPH - benign prostatic hyperplasia. Learn more about this condition, the effect it can have on your life, and how to treat BPH with an effective and minimally-invasive procedure called Urolift® by reading below or scheduling your appointment with ED and BPH Center of North Texas today!
BPH: What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) occurs when your prostate glands, which surround the urethra, enlarge and put pressure on your urethra, which complicates your ability to urinate.
BPH is noncancerous and extremely common in men. Most males will develop BPH at some point in their lifetime and the risk of BPH increases with age. Men between the ages of 51-60 have a 50% chance of showing signs of BPH (1).
Do You Have It? Symptoms of BPH
BPH, due to the pressure it puts on your urethra, can result in symptoms related to urination, including not being able to control urination, shifts in urgency, trouble starting, straining while urinating, having to push, a weak stream, constantly stopping and starting again, and dribbling.
Although younger men can also develop BPH, if you’re over 50 and beginning to have trouble urinating, you should seek diagnosis and treatment by a urologist.
What if Your Issues Continue? The Risks of Living with BPH
If you have BPH, your enlarged prostate will continue to put pressure on your urethra, meaning your urination issues will continue and may increase in intensity. This puts additional strain on your life.
Continuing to live with BPH can also put your long-term health in jeopardy. Consequences of living with BPH in addition to urination complications include:
- Developing bladder stones
- Infections in the bladder
- Bloody urine
- Back pressure
- Kidney damage
- Urinary tube blockages
These consequences can be prevented. BPH is treatable, and surgery is not your only option. Read below about the Urolift® System and how it can ease your BPH and help you avoid the symptoms of your BPH.
How UroLift® Brings Relief to BPH Sufferers Like You
Surgical procedures to fix BPH are risky and come with the possibility of developing erectile dysfunction or impotence. Urolift® does not carry with it those risks. Urolift® is a minimally-invasive procedure that provides immediate results and can be performed in the comfort of a doctor’s office instead of in an operating room.
The Urolift® procedure is known to provide lasting results by freeing your urethra from the pressure placed on it by your prostate. It accomplishes this through the Urolift® Delivery Device, which utilizes Urolift® implants that a doctor inserts around your urethra to move your prostate away from it. Once the implants are properly placed, your urethra will return to its full function and the symptoms you’ve been experiencing for months or years will reduce or even completely disappear.
