Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a non-life threatening condition that affects men as they get older. BPH (also known as enlarged prostate) happens when the prostate gland enlarges. It’s a condition that can cause great discomfort, especially at night, since sufferers tend to wake up several times during the night to urinate; this happens because they cannot empty their bladder fully in one go.
