As men get older, the prostate can enlarge and cause several issues ranging from acute to severe. This issue is called BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Although not directly the cause of prostate cancer, an enlarged prostate greatly increases a man’s risk of cancer. Most symptoms are typically acute but can affect the quality of living in a man’s life. Over 70 percent of men over 60 suffer from some form of an enlarged prostate and deal with the frustrating and uncomfortable symptoms daily like issues urinating.
