Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a medical term for an enlarged prostate gland. BPH is a non-cancerous condition that is common in older men. An enlarged prostate may slow urine flow or block it completely. This can cause serious problems in the urinary tract, bladder and kidneys. Medical tourism doctors use different approaches to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. Their professional experience, modern facilities, advanced techniques and compassionate care are appealing to foreign patients. Urology treatments abroad are more affordable too.
Many international medical clinics have state-of-the-art urology centers that treat male tourists for various prostate problems. Medical travelers can find quality urology specialists in Latin America, eastern Europe, Israel and the Far East. Urologists use prescription medications, treatments for infection, catheterization and prostate surgery to treat an enlarged prostate gland.
