In brief: Numerous options

There are numerous options in the treatment of bph, including combination medical therapy, minimally invasive procedures, endoscopic and open surgery.
Since, all procedures for BPH are directed at the inner aspect of the prostate, the transition zone, there is very little risk of erectile dysfunction (ed). This is quite different than prostate treatments for cancer which is associated with ed.
