Surgical Treatment of LUTS in men with BPE

TUMT

Transurethral Microwave Therapy (TUMT)

Transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT) of the prostate is minimally invasive treatment which uses microwave energy to harden parts of the prostate tissue. This process is called coagulation. The treated part of the prostate is either absorbed by the body or it passes with urine after the procedure. The aim of TUMT is to reduce the prostate volume and to improve the symptoms.

When should I consider having TUMT?

TUMT is recommended for men with a prostate between 30 to 100 millilitres who prefer minimally invasive treatment or do not wish to have surgery because of other medical conditions.
