Herbal therapy for
difficulty urinating caused by
benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), such as saw
palmetto or beta-sitosterol, may be helpful. Talk with your doctor about how
herbal therapy may be used in addition to medical treatment for BPH.
For information on transurethral treatment options, see the Surgery
section of this topic.
Balloon dilation is no longer used to
treat prostate enlargement, because it was found to be ineffective.
