Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is an enlarged prostate gland that can cause issues passing urine by compressing the urethra. BPH affects more than 50% of men in their sixties, over 70% of men in their seventies, and over 90% of men over the age of 80. Many symptoms of BPH and prostate cancer are the same, but BPH is not cancerous and does not develop into cancer.

What Causes Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?

The cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia is currently unknown. A normal prostate typically experiences two periods of growth; in early puberty, it doubles in size. Around age 25, the prostate starts to grow again and may continue growing for the remainder of a man’s life. This is why we see higher rates of BPH in older men.
