Non-Invasive Treatment for Men Who Suffer from Enlarged Prostate

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Disability Help Group

If your long-term disability benefits were cut off or if you have been denied disability benefits, getting legal counsel should be your next step.

Prostate surgery to treat an enlarged prostate comes with the risks of a patient developing urinary incontinence or impotency. In a report from U.S. News Health, a new type of prostate therapy may eliminate some of the common side effects that can become debilitating. This minimally invasive therapy, known as prostatic artery embolization (PAE), may help certain patients.

Patients that could potentially benefit from PAE therapy are those with:

  • severe symptoms in lower urinary tract;
  • weak urinary stream; and
  • prostates that are larger than 60 cubic centimeters.

While this new prostate therapy may be made available, some experts believe that greater emphasis should still be placed on the use of medication which can help to treat an enlarged prostate. In fact, a large majority of patients are helped with just medication.

Surgery is only required in a smaller number of men and since the findings of this new prostate therapy are still preliminary, some experts aren’t ready to jump on the bandwagon. There may also be potential unforeseen complications with this type of therapy.

A Broward County long-term disability representative can evaluate your claim to determine if you qualify for disability benefits.

Long-term disability benefits may be available to those who have purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. Unfortunately, the insurers don’t make it easy for the disabled to get access to the benefits they deserve. When a severe medical condition makes it impossible for you to work and you’ve been denied your long-term disability benefits, a representative from Disability Help Group can help you to cut through the red tape and fight for your benefits, no matter where you live in the U.S!
