Causes and Symptoms
Benign prostatic hyperplasia — in layman’s terms it is the enlargement of the prostate. The reason for that is usually that the cells in the prostate gland have begun to multiply. Due to the rapid production of these cells, the prostate gland swells up. This can often result in hindrance of the flow of urine by squeezing the urethra.
BPH is common among men who’re older than 50. It is important to note that BPH is not the equivalent of cancer and doesn’t correlate with the risk of cancer either. There are symptoms that are easily identified and can be treated.
