What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?

It’s possible that every man will suffer from prostate problems at some point in his life. One of the most common prostate problems is non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

But how do you know if you have BPH? Here’s a list of enlarged prostate symptoms.

Maybe you’re noticing some changes in your body, in your routine. Maybe you are experiencing some symptoms that may indicate a prostate problem. Are you going to the bathroom more frequently than you used to? Are you feeling that your bladder is not fully empty after you pee? Well, this can indicate that you’re dealing with an enlarged prostate.

Enlargement of the prostate means that the prostate gland gets bigger, causing a blockage of the urine flow. As a result, men have difficulties in urinating, can’t fully empty their bladder, and always feel the urge to run to the bathroom.

CanadaQBank shared this video where BPH is discussed, explaining what the prostate is, how it enlarges and how it interferes with the bladder. Treatment options available to ease the symptoms are also discussed.

Read more about how watchful waiting can be an effective BPH treatment option.
