A common condition among many aging men is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a noncancerous condition where the prostate becomes enlarged, and urinary issues start to take hold. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you could have an enlarged prostate:

  • Frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia)
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts
  • Dribbling at the end of urination
  • Inability to completely empty the bladder

Our interventional radiologists may decide to perform a Prostate Artery Embolization – a minimally invasive procedure which will block the blood supply and shrink the prostatic tissue.
