 Is BPH a type of cancer?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is not a type of cancer and it is not known to influence the risk of cancer.

The urologists of  Northeast Georgia Urological Associates commonly perform GreenLight Laser Prostatectomies in our accredited ambulatory surgery center.

Why? Because in most cases the procedure can be performed as an out patient, with minimal bleeding and limited need of a catheter.
