Managing BPH can be a daunting and frustrating situation for men. Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as an enlarged prostate, affects many men as they age, usually starting in their forties.
The prostate is a small, muscular gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It slowly swells as a man gets older, squeezing the urethra and limiting the flow of urine. An enlarged prostate is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH.
Accompanying symptoms can be mild to severe and usually get worse over time. Diagnosis helps to rule out other more serious conditions and can help to manage the symptoms and treat the condition.
