Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), formerly known as prostatism, is a common urological condition caused by the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in aging men.
As the prostate enlarges, it can squeeze down on the urethra. This can cause men to have trouble urinating, frequent need to urinate, urgency or other BPH symptoms. Risk factors for developing BPH include increasing age and a family history of BPH.
If you or a loved one are experiencing some of the challenges listed above, there are many options for treatment, one of which is discussed in the flyer with this post.
