About Prostate Occlusion

Learn More About Urological Conditions

If you have been diagnosed with a prostate occlusion, then turn to the surgical experts at miVIP surgery centers for a minimally invasive procedure. One thing that you should know about occlusions is that they do not lead to cancer. In order to determine whether or not you have an occlusion, your doctor might recommend a cystoscopy procedure.

Occlusions are a common type of benign cell growth found in men. Usually, the occlusion starts in the microscopic nodules of younger men. miVIP medical technologies and techniques are designed to take care of occlusions and any other urological conditions you might have.

How Occlusions are Diagnosed

There are a number of different ways to effectively diagnose a prostate occlusion, including:

  • Physical examination
  • Urine/Blood test
  • List of symptoms
  • Medical history

Your main healthcare provider might also suggest that you turn to a urologist for other more in-depth tests, some of which might be done to rule out the possibility of prostate or bladder cancer. A cystoscopy procedure can be done to examine the inside of your bladder and urethra.

Main Causes of Prostate Occlusions

There are two root causes of occlusions: shifts in a man’s hormones and the late activation of cell growth. If prostate cells become active later in life, they can cause a prostate occlusion by signaling other cells to either replicate or become sensitive to special growth hormones.

Prostate growth can also be stimulated by testosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is a powerful version of testosterone that can lead to late onset prostate enlargement.

Recognize the Symptoms of Occlusions

Before you consider a minimally invasive miVIP cystoscopy procedure, there are certain symptoms that are common to prostate occlusions, such as:

  • Straining during urination
  • Weak urinary flow
  • Leaking or dripping at the end of urination
  • A burning sensation during urination
  • An urgent need to urinate
  • Urinary retention

Viable Options for Treatment

The leading surgical experts at miVIP can offer you a variety of treatment options for your prostate occlusion, including:

  • Utilizing heat to burn off any extra tissue on the prostate, which can be done with a radio frequency, hot water or electrical current
  • A transurethral resection of the prostate, which is a more invasive treatment option, but comes with an increased chance of success

In any case, your cystoscopy procedure and treatment option will be taken care of by a highly experienced miVIP surgeon as well as an equally well-qualified support staff.
