Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that affects men as they age. It is the most common urological condition in men over 50, with up to 80% of men experiencing symptoms by the age of 80. In Australia, around 1 in 5 men aged 50 and over have been diagnosed with BPH. The most common symptoms of BPH are difficulty urinating, a weak urine stream, and frequent urination, especially at night. There is no cure for BPH, but there are treatments available to help manage the symptoms.Minimally invasive techniques are used to treat BPH when medications are not effective or when the patient prefers a less invasive option, yet awareness of these options may be mixed in general practice. GPs will be presented with a short overview on the established treatment options in addition to prostate artery embolization (PAE) which may be suitable for patients for whom other techniques are not appropriate. Within tertiary care, interventional radiologists are well positioned to offer these options to GPs and their patients.The education provides the GP with an overview of when to consider minimally invasive treatment options, what these options are and how to access them. By increasing GP awareness of these treatment options, patients with BPH will have greater choice in how they wish to manage their condition.
