Transuretheral resection of the prostate (TURP) This information tells you about an operation on the prostate
called a transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). It
explains how the operation is done, how it can help, what the
risks are and what to expect afterwards.

The benefits and risks described here are based on research
studies and may be different in your hospital. You may want

The operation is called a transurethral resection because your surgeon will pass a tube through your urethra (transurethral) and cut away your prostate (resect it).
This information is based on Clinical Evidence, the British Medical Journal‘s worldwide survey of the best, most up-to-date medical research, used by doctors everywhere.

Transuretheral resection of the prostate (TURP) An operation to cut away part of your enlarged prostate Why do I need a TURP?
• Your symptoms are causing you a lot of trouble, and drug It’s common for men’s prostates to get bigger as they get
older. Doctors call this benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH.
• You have large bladder stones. These can form if your Benign means it isn’t cancer. Hyperplasia means extra growth of normal cells. Nobody knows exactly why it happens, but it’s probably linked to changes in the amount of some hormones TURP is the most common type of operation for an enlarged prostate, although it’s not as common as it used to be. About 40,000 of these operations are done each year in the UK.5 BPH isn’t usually serious but if your prostate is enlarged it can press on your bladder and your urethra. This can cause problems when you urinate. You may:3 What happens during the operation?
• Make lots of trips to the toilet, and need to get up in the A TURP usually takes between half an hour and an hour, depending on how much of the prostate needs to be removed.
You’ll be given either a general anaesthetic (a drug that makes
you sleep) or an epidural (an injection into your spine). If you
have an epidural, the lower part of your body will be numb.
• Have a weak urine flow or one that stops and starts You won’t be able to see the operation, but you’ll be able to hear what’s going on. Usually a nurse or the anaesthetist will • Leak or dribble urine (some men wear pads to keep dry). Not everyone who has BPH will need an operation. It’s usually A surgeon will put a thin tube into the opening of your penis and up your urethra to your prostate. The tube has a light and a tiny camera on the end. The tube also has a tiny looped wire • Your urethra is so blocked that your bladder often doesn’t attached to it. This is heated with an electric current and used empty completely. The urine that’s left can keep causing to cut away the bit of your prostate that’s blocking your urine. The pieces of prostate are flushed down the tube with water.

Transuretheral resection of the prostate (TURP) An operation to cut away part of your enlarged prostate How can this operation help me?
There’s good research to show that surgery helps with the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. In one study, 9 in 0 men said that their symptoms were still better three years after their operation. This compares with 4 in 0 men who waited to see what would happen rather than having treatment.6 • After the operation, you should have a stronger stream of urine, and you shouldn’t have to strain or push to get your urine flowing.6 7 • You may also have more control over when you urinate and need to go less often and less urgently.6 7 • Your symptoms are less likely to interfere with your normal activities. So you may not need to rush to the bathroom or get up in the night as often as you did before. Many men say they can get back to doing things they enjoy, like outdoor sports and going to the cinema, without having to worry about being close to the toilet. What are the risks?

Your However, a study comparing men who had TURP with men symptoms probably won’t improve, but they may not get any who weren’t treated didn’t find that incontinence was more common in men who had surgery.6  So there’s mixed evidence on whether you are at risk of becoming incontinent Having a large prostate is unlikely to make you seriously ill and there’s no evidence that it causes prostate cancer.6 7 8 The

What other treatments are there?
There are several operations that are simpler and less
serious than TURP. These use heat from an electric current,
microwaves or laser beams to burn away part of your prostate.
Another type of operation is called a transurethral incision of
