Prostate Health

Prostate Symptoms

An enlarged prostate can seriously affect the quality of life of both men and women due to disturbed sleeping patterns.  Mr Zakikhani has established the HOLEP service Brighton and Hove and offers various laser and minimally invasive surgical treatments, including UROLIFT and REZUM.

Elevated PSA

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is the second most common cause of death in males.  Mr Zakikhani offers, prostate cancer screening to well informed men, utilising PSA, MRI and fusion guided biopsies if appropriate.


Prostatitis can be a debilitating condition affecting men. It can have bacterial and non-bacterial causes, it can be acute or cause chronic pain. Mr Zakikhani offers a range of treatments to help improve the quality of life for men affected.

Bladder Problems


Haematuria is also known as blood in your urine.  It can either be visible, seen by the patient (urine can be pink, red or dark brown), or non-visible (picked up by a health professional on a dipstick or microscope).  It is therefore important to discuss the merits of screening with imaging and a daycase procedure called a cystoscopy which inspects the bladder lining.

An overactive bladder (OAB)significantly impacts how people manage their daily routines, in constant search of a toilet.  OAB is treated in a step like fashion transitioning to more complex treatments if initial measures have failed.

Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections - UTI
