Overview

Benign (non-cancerous) enlargement of prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH is a very common medical condition affecting large number of men as they age. It is said that almost every man will experience some symptoms of BPH in their lifetime. When the prostate enlarges it obstructs the flow of urine down the urethra and results in varying symptoms. Although BPH is not life threatening but it could be embarrassing, inconvenient and uncomfortable.

Signs and Symptoms

The most common symptoms of BPH are:

  • Difficulty emptying your bladder completely
  • Difficulty sleeping due to frequent urination
  • Feeling of full bladder even after urinating
  • Dribbling after voiding
  • Leakage of urine
  • Blood in urine

Causes

The causes of BPH are:

  • Aging
  • Changes in hormonal balance and cell-growth factors

Treatment

The Urologist may recommend a range of treatments depending on the type of disease you're suffering from. These options may range from 'wait and see', drug therapies, surgery, or some combination.
