Prostate Cancer & Men’s Health Edition | Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD]
Guest: Mitchell R. Humphreys, M.D.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH is quite common in middle-age and older men. It’s estimated that up to 70% of men over age 60 have symptoms from BPH. While BPH is not a life-threatening condition, it does produce symptoms which can negatively affect the lifestyle of our patients. Since most of the patients with BPH are managed by primary care providers, we should be comfortable with the variety of treatment options available. When should treatment be initiated? What’s available pharmacologically? And when should a urologist be consulted to consider a surgical option? In this podcast, we’ll discuss these questions and more with Mitchell R. Humphreys, M.D., from the Department of Urology at the Mayo Clinic.
