Prostate: minimally invasive treatment

 

A healthy prostate is about the same size and shape as a walnut. Almost all men experience benign enlargement of the prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), as they get older. The enlarged prostate presses on the urethra and this leads to difficulties urinating.
