Expert Prostate Care
Prostate problems aren’t a single condition, but can be a group of disorders with related symptoms. Conditions may be a short-term and resolved quickly when treated, or prostate issues may sometimes be persistent and require continued management and therapy by your physician. The team of specialists at SouthWest Urology will help to determine optimal treatment plans and management to minimize symptoms and discomfort.
An enlarged prostate or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that often occurs in older men. This affects over 17 million men in the U.S. As men age, their hormone levels change causing the prostate to continue to grow. This excess tissue can block the urethra and obstruct the urine flow. The team at SouthWest Urology is trained in the diagnosis of this condition, and experts in treating it.
Prostatitis, a disease of the prostate gland, can cause groin pain/discomfort, painful urination, difficult urination and other related symptoms. The prostate gland typically functions to produce components of semen, a fluid that transports sperm. The gland, about the size and shape of a walnut or lime, is located below the bladder and surrounds the tube that transports both semen and urine out of the penis.
