The size, measured as volume, of the prostate gland needs to be determined. A good estimate of prostate volume is critical in determining which treatments can be offered.
Other factors that need to be taken into consideration in determining enlarged prostate treatments options
- Risk of incontinence
- Preservation of sexual function both in terms of erection and ejaculation
- Age of the patient and durability of the procedure
- Patient health including ischemic heart disease
- Hospital stay and recovery
- Other complications such as Diverticulum (small bulges or pockets that can develop in the lining of the intestine as you get older) or bladder stones
