Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the medical term, but we all know it more commonly as an enlarged prostate. Increasingly common in men as they age, it is believed that potentially all men will suffer from BPH at some point in their lives if they live long enough.

The prostate gland is present only in males and is located around the urethra between the bladder and penis. According to The National Institutes of Health, it is estimated that as high as ninety percent of men over the age of 70 have some symptoms related to BPH. Basically, BPH is caused by a growth of the cells of the prostate gland, which causes the gland to enlarge and puts excess pressure on the urethra.

The exact cause of prostate enlargement isn't clearly understood. It is related to the functioning of the testicles and the hormones they produce, and also correlates with age. No risk factors for developing BPH are known, however men who have had their testicles removed - say, due to testicular cancer - will not develop enlargement of the prostate gland.
