    I thought bph and prostate cancer are the same thing, Im glad I was wrong, when I got checked with my urologist he explained it to me also told me that for young men, the most prostate problem is prostatitis, this is an inflammation of the prostate gland. It may be very uncomfortable, but prostatitis is not life-threatening and it does not mean that the sufferer has — or ever will have — prostate cancer. My doc prescribed me a treatment that includes a powerful supplement for the prostate named alpharise. it really works
