"A simple treatment changed my life"
Thorbjörn Lindgren had to run to the toilet every fifteen minutes like clockwork. He also had trouble with both leakage and urinary urgency. Thanks to a simple treatment, he is today completely problem-free.
For many men, the prostate swells after the age of 60, causing the prostate to squeeze around the urethra and the vas deferens. The bladder is often affected, and many find it difficult to urinate and empty the bladder. This phenomenon is called benign prostatic hyperplasia, which in simple terms means prostate enlargement that is harmless, but difficult to live with.

Even though his enlarged prostate caused great limitations in his life and the queue for surgery was long, Sören Broman was never informed of treatment with microwaves. When he heard about the method by chance, he got help immediately. All for the cost of a regular doctor’s visit. “It was like starting to live again.”

Despite suffering from an enlarged prostate, Sören Broman was never informed of treatment with microwaves. When he heard about the method by chance, he got help immediately. All for the cost of a regular doctor’s visit.
“It was like starting to live again.”
Prostate treatment with microwaves can eliminate urinary urgency and the need to get up in the middle of the night to urinate. All it takes is a ten-minute treatment under local anaesthesia.
"Microsize” your prostate – it will improve your life!
“Prostatagubbar” – Old Prostate Men. That's the derogatory term that a large group of men with benign prostatic hyperplasia have to deal with. The condition greatly reduces quality of life, with constant urinary urgency and difficulty emptying the bladder.
These “Prostatagubbar” are a patient group that lives in the shadow of prostate cancer care. As a result, they usually have to wait far too long for treatment.
Up until the autumn of 2017, carpenter Peter Nilsson (age 65) from Kalmar, Sweden, was one of these men. Today, he has a completely different reality. After undergoing a so-called CoreTherm treatment, Peter (as he says himself) has regained a life of freedom.
