Problems with bladder control and sexual function can be treated. Chances are good that you can be helped.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has many research programs aimed at finding treatments for urinary disorders, including prostatitis and BPH. The Medical Therapy of Prostate Symptoms (MTOPS) program is studying the results of medical therapy used to treat thousands of men with BPH in several research centers throughout the country. MTOPS will provide valuable information about the effectiveness and side effects of drugs being used for BPH.
Research is also under way to evaluate new approaches to surgical treatment of BPH. Studies are planned to assess the effectiveness of saw palmetto and other herbal remedies for this disorder.
