NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT FOR BPH

WATCHFUL WAITING - For men with mild BPH with little to no symptoms, Dr. Steinberg may recommend watchful waiting.

MEDICATIONS - After a complete evaluation, Dr. Steinberg may prescribe one or a combination of medications for men who require treatment for an enlarged prostate.

  • Alpha-blockers , such as Tamsulsoin (Flomax) may relieve symptoms within a few weeks but do not stop the process of prostate                enlargement.
  • 5-alpha reductase inhibitors , such as Dutasteride (Avodart), Finasteride (Proscar), may reduce the size of an enlarged prostate but may take 6 months or more to show any            effect on symptoms.
  • Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors , such as Tadalafil (Cialis), may help reduce BPH symptoms. PDE-5 inhibitors are well known medicines for erection problems and              may be prescribed for patients with both BPH and ED.
