Interventional radiology also plays a crucial role in addressing specific health concerns for men. Two notable procedures in this context are Prostate Artery Embolisation and Varicocele Embolisation.

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

BPH is a non-cancerous condition characterised by the enlargement or hyperplasia of the prostate gland, resulting in uncomfortable urinary symptoms. Prostate gland enlargement is a common occurrence with age. Yet, when urinary symptoms impact the quality of life, treating BPH becomes essential.


Varicoceles are caused when the one-way valves in the scrotal veins, which allow blood to flow from the testicles and scrotum back to the heart, become dysfunctional or fail. This causes the blood to pool and the veins around the testicle enlarge to form a varicocele.
