We would like to share with you some exciting news regarding new treatments for patients with enlarged prostate (BPH). Are you tired of taking medications? Are you tired of paying for medications? Are you tired of side effects caused by your medication? Are you looking for a solution to your problem? If the answer is yes, we would like to make you aware of a new office-based procedure for the treatment of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia). Patients with a history of enlarged prostates and symptoms such as frequency, urgency, nocturia and slow stream can benefit from this treatment. This is a five minute procedure performed in our office with minimal discomfort. This procedure is a good alternative for those patients who are struggling with the common side effects and the ongoing costs of medical therapy. It is covered by Medicare and most other insurance carriers and unlike medication, it doesn’t have to be taken daily and there are no monthly co-payments.
What is a patient's risk for prostate cancer after a negative biopsy? Since a standard prostate biopsy only samples less than 1% of the entire prostate, a patient can have a negative prostate biopsy but still have undetected prostate cancer. However, the good news is that there is a new test that works on the DNA level to help identify undetected cancers. This test is able to detect abnormal changes to DNA associated with the presence of prostate cancer. If you had had a negative prostate biopsy within the past 24 months, ask the doctor for more information
