As an entrepreneur and small business owner, Charles Ellis developed a keen eye for identifying problems and opportunities solve them. However, when his need for frequent bathroom breaks due to benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) started interfering with his daily life he wasn't immediately sure where to go for help.
More than 70% of men over the age of 70 are affected by BPH, also called benign prostate enlargement (BPE). Symptoms include frequent and urgent urination, difficulty urinating and incontinence.
Charles lived with his symptoms for more than a year before learning Rezūm™ Water Vapor Therapy, a minimally invasive treatment that uses water vapor to shrink the size of the prostate and alleviate BPH symptoms by reducing pressure on the bladder and urethra.
After researching treatment options and speaking with a clinical specialist, Charles decided to move forward with Rezūm Therapy. 'I'm quite happy with where I am at the moment,' he said. 'I don't worry about going to the loo when I arrive somewhere. In fact, sometimes I arrive places and I don't even think about it at all.'
To learn more about common symptoms of an enlarged prostate talk to your health care provider. For more information about Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy, please visit the following resources:
