In this 3D medical video from Nucleus Medical Media, we find out more about the anatomy of the prostate gland and what happens when a man gets benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or an enlarged prostate.
As men get older, the prostate gland grows and it can block the urethra, which for some may lead to difficulty urinating, an urgency to urinate, and bladder and kidney problems. The film urges men to have their prostate checked every year. If a man has BPH then there are several treatment options available, including watchful waiting, medications and surgery.
