Using water vapor thermal therapy to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) caused by an enlarged prostate could have fewer sexual side effects than medications, a new study suggests. The therapy is administered only once, while medications are taken over the long term, the authors pointed out. For many men, the prostate gland grows larger […]
A combination of two drugs – dutasteride and solifenacin – might result in improved sexual satisfaction among men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) accompanied by lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). BPH is the medical term for an enlarged prostate, which affects an estimated 50% to 75% of men over age 50. The prostate gland grows […]
Men who take a fixed-dose combination of dutasteride and tamsulosin to manage urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate could be more likely to experience ejaculatory disorders, according to a recent study in BJU International.
While 5α-reductase inhibitors (5ARIs) are considered safe and effective, a recent meta-analysis by Chinese researchers suggests that BPH patients who take them could be at risk for sexual side effects.
Convective water vapor thermal therapy may be a viable treatment for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) who suffer from lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), new research suggests.
Sexual side effects from surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and associated lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are “underappreciated by urologists,” experts say. Yet, these side effects are important factors when patients consider treatments.
