In terms of delayed side effects, all endoscopic surgeries are same. You need to discuss treatment benefits and indications with your treating Urologist. The size of prostate, comorbidities and many other things help decide the proper line of management.

Hello there...... Laser surgery for BPH involves inserting a scope through the penis tip into the urethra. A laser passed through the scope removes prostate tissue by ablation (melting) or cutting.... The laser melts excess prostate tissue in photoselective vaporization of the prostate... remove excess tissue and a morcellator to slice extra tissue into small segments that are removed.... Less Side effects are common in any kind of surgery....
