      Hi 

      WEll you need a referral initially to a Urologist at the local Hospital. And they will do scans etc to determine the problem.

      If you do have BPH then you need to fully research all your options.

      I had a PAE which in my opinion is the best place to start.

      regards

      Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, an enlarged prostate that is not life threatening.

      Prostatic Arterial Embolisation. A simple procedure that injects tiny beads to block some arteries that has the effect of shrinking it to allow better flow and reduce the pressure on the bladder leading to frequent urinating.

      It is important to have a specific diagnosis for YOUR problem before you start considering the options.
