Does a patient without kidney function/urine output need to treat enlarged prostate?

I’d like to know from health care professionals whether an enlarged benign prostate has a negative or degenerative effect on other than urinary or sexual function. Does it require treatment other than to correct urine flow?

Hi A Traveler,

Interesting question! I’m not a doctor or nurse (perhaps one will weigh in for you), but did find a really good article on a government website:

There is no link between benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and cancer, so if you don’t make any urine and don’t care about your sexual function, you may not need treatment for it. If you make some urine, BPH does increase the chance of urinary tract infections. There are a number of treatments, ranging from medications to laser surgery.
