Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Prostate issues are common in men and West Georgia Urology specializes in diagnosing and treating these conditions. BPH is a benign (non-cancerous) enlargement of the prostate. This condition can cause problems with urination by blocking the flow from the bladder. West Georgia Urology provides its patients with thorough evaluations and treatment for BPH that combine clinical experience, use of effective medication and state-of-the-art technology.
