Enlarged prostate treatment

The treatment choice for an enlarged prostate depends on the severity of the problem

Dr. Jen Tan summarises the options available for treating an enlarged prostate, also known as BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy). These treatments are only suitable once a diagnosis of an enlarged prostate has been confirmed by your doctor.

    Which UK Hospitals offer Transurethral Microwave Thermotherapy? I can't find any, and if there are clinics, is treatment available on NHS?
