New Treatment For Enlarged Prostate

About 50 percent of men over the age of 50 have enlarged prostates. Yes, it’s unpleasant, and it’s what keeps many men getting up several times a night to pee. For years, surgery and meds have been the most common treatments, and both can have unpleasant side effects, including, yes, sexual dysfunction.  Now, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal, comes a new treatment, one that uses blasts of steam to kill prostate cells and can reduce the size of prostates by a third.  It’s called NxThera therapy, and like another new treatment, an implanted device called UroLift, it is said to leave sexual function functioning.
