Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men in New Zealand with approximately 2700 new diagnoses a year. A diagnosis of cancer can be an understandably difficult time for patients and choosing the right treatment option is a big decision. Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy is an excellent option for patients who need to have their prostate removed.
Urinary frequency, urgency and nocturia should not be something men have to suffer through as they age. BPH is a very common occurrence in men where the prostate tissue grows in age and begins to impact the patient’s bladder function causing urinary frequency/urgent trips to the toilet, difficulty emptying the bladder fully, waking throughout the night to go to the toilet and/or blood associated with passing urine.
