What is BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA (BPH) ?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the medical term for an enlarged prostate. Further, it is a non-cancerous disorder, an enlarged prostate is the most common prostate health problem among men.
BPH may result in a range of uncomfortable symptoms. In addition as the prostate slowly continues to enlarge, symptoms may gradually worsen, interfering with sleep, physical comfort and routine activities. In rare cases, an untreated enlarged prostate can lead to an inability to urinate, incontinence, bladder stones, kidney infections, and damage to the bladder, kidneys and urethra.
Symptoms of BPH vary with each individual. Here’s what to look for:
- Frequent, often urgent need to urinate, especially at night
- Need to strain or push to get the urine flowing
- Inability to completely empty the bladder
- Dribbling or leaking after urination
- Weak urine stream
Because male urinary symptoms can also be caused by more serious conditions – like prostate cancer – it’s important to see your doctor to determine the cause of your symptoms.
A wide variety of treatments are available for enlarged prostate, including medication, minimally invasive therapies and surgery. The best treatment choice for you depends on several factors, including:
- Firstly, the size of your prostate
- Secondly, your age
- Thirdly, your overall health
- Finally, the amount of discomfort or bother you are experiencing
If your symptoms are tolerable, you might decide to postpone treatment and simply monitor your symptoms. For some men, symptoms can ease without treatment.
