Report: Botox may help men with prostate problems
May 24, 2007 (WLS) -- New research suggests that Botox may help men with prostate problems.
A small study by doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center looked at men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia. They found that 75% of the participants experienced partial symptom relief when Botox was injected directly into the gland.
The Botox apparently helps relax the nerves and muscle tone in the prostate. Doctors said this could be an alternative for people who have side effects from pills or are afraid of surgery.
The findings will be presented this week at the at the American Urological Association's annual meeting in California.
