The treatment selection paradigm in BPH is evolving

Across Europe, millions of men suffer from BPH.1 Therapy has traditionally included pharmaceutical interventions and surgical treatments.2

However, as new options become available and patients seek to be more involved in the decision-making process, is there a need for a shift in the treatment selection paradigm?
