Managing Benign Prostate Hyperplasia & Peyronie’s Disease: A Urologist Discusses
Managing Benign Prostate Hyperplasia & Peyronie’s Disease: A Urologist Discusses

As a man gets older, he may experience symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is a condition when the prostate gland is enlarged and causes difficulty with urination. 

Peyronie's disease is a different urological condition that typically affects men above the age of 40, but is also present in men under that age. The condition usually presents as penile curvature associated with a palpable lump.  

Thankfully, there are medical treatments for both these conditions in Singapore. Dr Ronny Tan, a consultant urologist in Singapore, recently answered DoctorxDentist reader questions regarding these male urological conditions and how they are managed in Singapore. Here are his key pointers.
