Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a disease that affects men. Depending on the patients’ age, physical condition, severity of the BPH and symptoms experienced, physicians may opt to treat the disease with medications, minimally invasive procedures, surgery, or a combination of treatments.
There are also some BPH-related diseases that are worth taking a look at:
1. Acute or chronic urinary retention: BPH may result in acute or chronic urinary retention, an inability to empty the bladder completely. When acute, it is a complete incapacity to urinate that happens suddenly and lasts only a short time and is potentially life-threatening.
