Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Surgery in Dubai

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) refers to the enlargement of the prostate gland, which starts growing rapidly during puberty and reaches its normal adult size of a walnut in a man’s early 20s. However, around mid-40s, the prostate may begin to grow again through cell multiplication, leading to BPH, a non-cancerous condition where the gland may grow beyond the acceptable size. As the prostate continues to enlarge, it can eventually put pressure on the urethra, causing difficulty in emptying the bladder completely, and leading to problems associated with BPH. Although BPH is a benign condition, it is prevalent among older men, affecting about 60% of men over age 60 and 80% of men over age 80.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek medical advice. At the German Medical Center, we specialize in treating BPH and other urological conditions.

There are two main diseases that can cause the enlargement of the prostate gland in men: benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer.   Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH):   BPH is a non-cancerous condition that occurs when the prostate gland becomes enlarged due to the proliferation of cells. As men age, their hormone levels change, leading to an increase in the production of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT stimulates the growth of prostate cells, leading to an increase in prostate size.   Prostate Cancer:   Prostate cancer is a malignant disease that occurs when the cells of the prostate gland start to grow uncontrollably. Prostate cancer can occur in any part of the prostate gland, and it can spread to other parts of the body, including the bones and lymph nodes.   The early stages of prostate cancer often have no symptoms, but as the cancer progresses, symptoms may include difficulty urinating, frequent urination, blood in the urine or semen, and pain in the lower back or hips. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, with the risk of developing prostate cancer increasing with age.   It is important to distinguish between BPH and prostate cancer, as they can present similar symptoms, but require different treatment approaches.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition that affects many older men and an enlarged prostate gland. There are several factors that may contribute to its development. Some of the detailed causes of BPH include:
  1. Hormonal Changes: BPH is often associated with hormonal changes that occur as men age. Specifically, as men get older, levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) increase in the prostate gland which causes men to have an enlarged prostate gland. DHT is a hormone that contributes to prostate growth and can cause the gland to enlarge.
  2. Aging: As men age, the prostate gland naturally grows larger. In some cases, this growth can lead to BPH.
  3. Family History: Men with a family history of BPH are more likely to develop the condition themselves. This suggests that there may be a genetic component to BPH.
  4. Inflammation: Inflammation of the prostate gland, often caused by infection or injury, may contribute to the development of BPH.
  5. Lifestyle Factors: Certain lifestyle factors, such as lack of exercise, obesity, and a diet high in fat and red meat, may increase the risk of developing BPH.
  6. Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, may increase the risk of developing BPH.
  7. Medications: Some medications used to treat other conditions, such as hypertension and erectile dysfunction, may increase the risk of developing BPH.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of BPH:
  1. Difficulty urinating: This is one of the most common symptoms of BPH. Men with BPH may experience a weak or slow urinary stream, or may have to strain to start urinating.
  2. Frequent urination: Men with BPH may need to urinate more often than usual, particularly at night.
  3. Urgency: Men with BPH may feel a sudden urge to urinate that can be difficult to control.
  4. Incomplete bladder emptying: Men with BPH may feel like they haven't completely emptied their bladder after urinating.
  5. Dribbling: After urinating, some men with BPH may experience dribbling or leaking.
  6. Pain or discomfort: BPH can cause pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen, groin, or lower back.
  7. Blood in the urine: In rare cases, BPH can cause blood in the urine.

What are the diagnostic measures for BPH?

Our urologist may recommend a series of diagnostic measures to help determine the cause and extent of your condition. Some of the common diagnostic measures for
  1. Medical history and physical examination: Your doctor will likely ask about your medical history, including any symptoms you've been experiencing, as well as perform a physical exam that may include a digital rectal exam (DRE) to check the size and shape of your prostate.
  2. Urine tests: Your doctor may recommend a urine test to rule out other possible causes of your symptoms, such as a urinary tract infection.
  3. Blood tests: A blood test can help rule out other potential causes of your symptoms, such as kidney disease or diabetes.
  4. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test: A PSA test measures the level of PSA in the blood, which can be an indicator of prostate cancer. While BPH is not cancer, it can cause elevated PSA levels, so your doctor may recommend this test to rule out other potential causes of your symptoms.
  5. Urodynamic testing: Urodynamic testing involves measuring the pressure and flow of urine in the bladder and urethra. This can help determine the extent of urinary obstruction caused by an enlarged prostate.
  6. Imaging tests: Your doctor may recommend imaging tests, such as an ultrasound or MRI, to get a better look at your prostate gland and rule out other possible causes of your symptoms.

What are the treatment options for BPH?

BPH or Enlarged prostate treatment includes several options available, ranging from lifestyle changes to medication and surgical procedures. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms, overall health, age, and personal preferences.
  1. Watchful waiting: If your symptoms are mild, your doctor may recommend watchful waiting, which involves monitoring your symptoms and waiting to see if they improve or worsen over time.
  2. Lifestyle changes: Making certain lifestyle changes, such as reducing caffeine and alcohol intake, avoiding drinking fluids before bedtime, and exercising regularly, may help alleviate BPH symptoms.
  3. Medications: Medications such as alpha-blockers and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors can help relax the muscles in the prostate and reduce its size. Other medications, such as antimuscarinics and phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, can help alleviate symptoms such as urinary urgency and erectile dysfunction.
  4. Minimally invasive procedures: Minimally invasive procedures, such as transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) or transurethral needle ablation (TUNA), can help alleviate BPH symptoms by shrinking or removing prostate tissue.
  5. Surgery: In severe cases of BPH, surgery may be necessary to remove the prostate tissue that is causing the urinary obstruction. Common surgical procedures include transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), laser surgery, or open prostatectomy.
