Several treatments are available for BPH, including medications, minimally invasive treatment and surgery. Your doctor will evaluate your condition and suggest the most appropriate treatment, depending on your symptoms, the severity of the BPH, the size of your prostate, other health conditions you might have and your preferences.
For mild to moderate symptoms, medication is usually the first form of treatment. If your symptoms are moderate to severe, minimally invasive or surgical treatment might then be recommended.
Rezum may be recommended if:
- You choose to discontinue or you prefer not to take long-term medications for BPH
- You are dissatisfied with symptom relief using medication
- You want to avoid invasive surgery or implants
- You want a treatment with minimal risk of disturbance to sexual function
Discuss with your doctor if Rezum is a good treatment option for you based on your symptoms, health and preferences.
