Urologist, Arnie B. Tannenbaum, M.D. is the featured speaker for an upcoming lecture on Minimally Invasive Therapy- Benign Prostate Hypertrophy, also known as BPH.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as benign prostatic hypertrophy, is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. The type and severity of symptoms experienced will vary from person to person and may vary over time. For many men, BPH never progresses beyond a minor to moderate annoyance such as getting up to urinate, going frequently, and uncontrolled urination. For others it may represent a significant challenge to their quality of life. BPH becomes a very common condition in men as they age. According to the American Urology Association, about 50% of men will have some degree of BPH by the time they are 60 years old, and up to 90% will be affected by age 80. Dr. Tannenbaum will be discussing problems associated with BPH, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options available.
