Is prostate surgery for BPH risky for a 72-year-old patient?

Any form of surgery does involve some risk, and with prostate surgery this may be complicated by the possibility of incontinence and impotence.

These are not, however, inevitable, and it is necessary to weigh up the risks against the potential benefits – and this tends to depend on the severity of the symptoms being experienced due to the BPH.

It would be best to speak to your consultant in this instance, to be able to accurately assess the risk/benefit ratio.
