Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Caring for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia


Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), or prostate enlargement, is a condition in men in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged due to a fluctuation or change in hormones, often with age. It is the most common prostate problem for men older than 50.

An enlarged prostate can narrow, or even block the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms.

These symptoms include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Increased urinary urgency
  • Trouble urinating
  • Incontinence
  • A weak/interrupted urine stream
  • Urine that has an unusual color or smell


The Urology Clinic of Winchester treats patients with enlarged prostates using incisionless, minimally invasive procedures. These treatments offer faster recovery and symptom relief compared with traditional prostate surgery.

  • Holmium Laser Therapy uses a laser to remove tissue that is blocking urine flow through the prostate. This procedure can preserve tissue to be examined in the laboratory for other conditions, including prostate cancer.
  • UroLift is a quick procedure that provides fast and reliable symptom relief by using tiny UroLift implants. These implants are permanently placed inside the urethra to increase the opening and improve obstruction.
