The most important prostate diseases are 1) prostatic hyperplasia, 2) prostatitis and 3) prostate cancer. They all cause a more frequent need to urinate, poor urine flow, difficulties holding it in and, in some cases, urinary tract infections. It is important to investigate the cause of these symptoms at as early a stage as possible. Normally, the investigation is carried out using palpation, ultrasound of the urinary tract and blood and urine samples.
Prostatitis is treated with antibiotics and prostatic hyperplasia with medication or surgery using either traditional slicing or lasers, which you can read more about below. Prostate cancer is treated using surgery, radiotherapy and hormone therapy. Eira Hospital is partnered with Docrates Cancer Center for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of cancer. Cancer can be treated privately from beginning to end.
