Our Greatest Wealth is Health: BPH Treatment

“Health is wealth” is a saying that rings true with a lot of people. However, some people find themselves facing conditions that they would rather not have to deal with. One condition that affects over 50% of men over the age of 60 is benign prostatic hyperplasia, of BPH. And just like any other condition, BPH treatment is available.  Treatment options range from non-invasive methods such as medication and out patient Cooled ThermoTherapy to surgery. If you find that your health is not as you would like it to be, talk with your doctor and make the changes necessary to restore yourself.

Cooled ThermoTherapyTM is available by prescription only. This therapy is not for everyone. Talk to your physician to see if Cooled ThermoTherapy is right for you. Most medical procedures may have side effects. Possible side effects for Cooled ThermoTherapy include blood in urine, clots in urine, painful or difficult urination, thickened bladder muscle, rectal irritation, temporary inability to control urination, brief inability to achieve or maintain swelling of the male organ and the inability to discharge semen at climax, thus should be considered by men who wish to have further offspring. A small risk of urethral stricture may result requiring further intervention. Patients may experience discomfort during the procedure that may require the use of analgesics or sedatives. Patients may be catheterized for a 2 to 5 day period following the treatment.1 For more complete information about the benefits and risks associated with Cooled ThermoTherapy please refer to the Instructions for Use found on our website at www.cooledthermotherapy.com or call us at 1.800.475.1403.
