BPH is a condition that occurs in men when the prostate gland is enlarged but not cancerous. Factors such as family history, lifestyle, and your overall medical condition can affect your risk for developing BPH.
The occurrence and severity of BPH symptoms vary, but it does tend to increase with age.
Are you experiencing any of these lower urinary tract problems typical of an enlarged prostate?
- Inability to completely empty your bladder

If you experience even minor urinary difficulties, the choice to consult with a board certified urology specialist is a wise one. You can have your symptoms and health condition evaluated for the best options to keep your urinary and reproductive systems healthy and your quality of life unhindered.
