Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) – or enlarged prostate – is a condition that affects men as they grow older. BPH causes a lot of discomfort among men but fortunately this is a non-cancerous condition and is not life-threatening.
Enlargement of the prostate means that the prostate gland gets bigger, causing a blockage of the urine flow. Since the prostate is located just below the bladder and surrounding the urethra, its enlargement can restrict the flow of urine from the bladder. As a result, men have difficulties in urinating, can’t fully empty their bladder, and always feel the urge to run to the bathroom.
