I am Dr. Saurabh Mishra. Today I will discuss the myths and facts about BPH. There is a common myth that if the size is small than treatment will be by medications and if the size is large then it may need surgical treatment. But in fact, it may happen vice versa. Now the second myth is about the BPH versus prostate cancer. There is a common myth that prostate patient may develop prostate cancer. So, BPH patients do not have a high risk of prostate cancer. The third myth is that all patients can be treated with surgical treatment. But in fact, few patients need surgical treatment.
Fourth myth: Leakage of urine after prostate surgery. This rate has gone down in the recent time. Fifth myth: Small prostate has a small problem and large prostate has a large problem. But in fact, size does not matter in this problem at all.
