Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a disease that attacks the male reproductive system and is characterized by the enlargement of the prostate, causing urinary problems. Despite the fact that it affects the majority of men by a determined age, there is still a lack of information about the disease. This advertising video was recently released to raise awareness about BPH and its treatment, and it is a simple way to understand the function and symptoms of the disease.
“BPH, the actual hyperplasia of the prostate gland, develops as a strictly age-related phenomenon in nearly all men, starting at approximately 40 years of age,” states the author of the study “Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: An Overview.” In fact, the histologic prevalence of BPH, which has been examined in several autopsy studies around the world is approximately 10% for men in their 30s, 20% for men in their 40s, reaches 50% to 60% for men in their 60s, and is 80% to 90% for men in their 70s and 80s. No doubt, when living long enough, most men will develop some histologic features consistent with BPH.”
Explaining the development and onset of the disease through illustrations, the video explains that enlargement of the prostate causes bladder and urination problems. Therefore, patients often explain dribbling at the end of urination, inability to urinate or to completely empty the bladder, incontinence, painful or bloody urination, frequent urination during the night, straining to urinate, and strong and sudden urges to urinate.
There is, however, treatment for BPH, which should be discussed with a specialized physician. In addition to explaining the disease and its symptoms, the video, which was created by the producers of prostate and urinary health supplements, Prostatam, also provides information about the benefits of daily supplements. The use of supplements should also be discussed with a doctor or dietitian.
