What are the long-term risks if I don’t treat?
Eventually there may be complications affecting other organs.
Initially the bladder will be affected and more rarely, even the upper urinary tract, which may lead to kidney damage.
Bladder stones and chronic urinary tract infections are relatively common complications.
Urinary retention, a sudden inability to urinate, may occur. This acute condition with its associated severe pain requires emergency medical treatment. So remember the final decision to treat BPH is yours.
Don’t wait – contact your doctor and discuss your problems
