Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is the enlargement of the prostate gland. This pinches the urethra and produces symptoms such as frequent urination at night, pain in the perineum, burning during urination, difficulty urinating, slow stream, blood in the urine, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction. Although the exact cause is unknown, it seems that BPH may be caused by the cellular dysfunction of prostatic cells. This can be due to chronic inflammation and excessive free radicals. Increased cell growth due to hormonal imbalances within the prostate gland may also result in BPH.
The modern treatment for prostate enlargement consist of the drugs and invasive procedures. Begining in 1992 the FDA approved medications such as Proscar, Avodart, Hytrin, Cardura, Flomax, and Uraxatral. Many time these drugs can be beneficial when prescribed in conjunction with PSA ZERO™. Once you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, BPH, or prostate cancer, it is important to understand the anatomy, physiology, pathology and various treatment options available. Once this education is obtained you should understand the risks and complications involved vs the benefit.
Regardless of your decision the fact that you have a problem or disease means, a lifestyle exam is necessary to enable you to live a long-lasting healthy life. All of these things should be considered before you decide to have an invasive procedure performed. The invasive procedures consist of Cryo Prostate Surgery, (TURP), Laser Surgery, Water-Induced Thermotherapy, Transurethral Microwave Procedure, Water-Induced Thermotherapy, and High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. Once an invasive procedure is performed, it can cause damage to the flow of prostatic secretions and result in sexual dysfunctions (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and retrograde ejaculation).
With the awareness of the PSA ZERO Program™ you will have a better understanding for the prostate and sexual functions so you can make the proper decision for your present condition. This is the best opportunity you have to keep your normal biological function which nature has given you.
