Dr. Donald Sonn: Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

Dr. Donald Sonn -: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH, is commonly called an enlarged prostate. This is the one of the most common conditions of the urinary tract. Men can show prostate conditions as early as forty years of age. Men over the age of eighty are ninety percent likely to have the condition. The non-cancerous condition affects most of men over the age of sixty.

Dr. Donald SonnThe causes of prostate enlargement are still unknown, and though it is not cancerous, it can still cause problems in the urine flow. The condition causes men to have to urinate often times during the night. Dr. Donald Sonn and other physicians alike often recommend treatment of the disease. Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all treatment for an enlarged prostate yet. However, if there are minor issues, Dr. Donald Sonn and physicians recommend lifestyle changes. Drinking less fluid in the evening and lowering the consumption of alcohol and caffeine will help prevent the consistent trips to the bathroom during the night. On top of this, Sonn recommends slowing down on the intake of diuretics, antihistamines, and decongestants.

If there are more severe cases, Dr. Donald Sonn recommend transurethral resection of the prostate or TURP. This treatment requires hospitalization and catheterization for at least forty-eight hours and includes risks such are bleeding and fluid absorption. In this treatment, part of the enlarged prostate tissue that is obstructing the urethra is removed. Dr. Donald Sonn is a physician who specializes in urology and currently works with the Urology Group of Western New England.
