HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

TURP is a procedure where an instrument is inserted up the urethra to remove the section of the prostate that is blocking the urine flow.

It is considered if there is no response to conservative treatment of BPH such as flomax, avodart.
As with any surgical procedure there are potential risks, these are issues that may or may not occur.

You would have to look at the degree of symptoms that you are experiencing and the impact on your life. If the effects of the BPH even with the use of flomax, are intolerable, then you may want to consider having the procedure done.

I hope this helps
