Prostate Artery Embolization

Prostate Artery Embolization

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is found in one in four men by the age of 55. This condition is characterized by an enlarged prostate that grows against the urethra, causing difficulties during urination.

Some of the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia include:

  • The frequent urge to urinate
  • Difficulty starting to urinate
  • The urgent need to urinate frequently at night (nocturnia)
  • Inability to completely void the bladder
  • Dribbling after urination
  • Weak urine stream

Some other symptoms can include blood in urine, urinary tract infection, or the inability to urinate if the condition is left untreated.
