SALT LAKE CITY -- In Thursday's edition of Booming Forward, Dave Nemeth takes a look at a new treatment option for BPH, which is also known as an enlarged prostate. One in four men experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate by the age of 55, and that rate increases to 90 percent in men over the age of 70, according to a press release.

The new treatment, minimally invasive UroLift, is an outpatient procedure approved by the FDA for, "treatment for BPH that provides total preservation of sexual function." See the video above for Dave's report on the new procedure.
