Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is the genetically predetermined natural enlargement of the prostate gland, which restricts urine outflow from the bladder. This can be treated non-surgically with medications to relax the bladder neck and prostate muscle fibers (alpha-blockers or cytoreductive medications) to reduce the size of the prostate gland, such as Proscar or the common herb saw palmetto. Refractory cases can be treated with an outpatient, low-risk radio frequency ablation of BPH or transurethral microwave thermotherapy.
