In many cases, treatment for BPH is not necessary. However, because BPH can be progressive, men with this condition should be followed to watch for complications, such as infections and kidney stones. It is recommended that a man consult his doctor if he has bothersome symptoms and immediately if he has blood in his urine, pain during urinating, or cannot urinate.

Treatment options for BPH should be discussed with your doctor and may include surgery or medications.
