Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Common Name(s)

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, and is common in older men. Symptoms may include: enlarged prostate, urine retention, slow flow of urine, and need to urinate urgently. BPH typically begins while a man is in his 30's, but usually only causes symptoms after age 50. This condition is very common, half of men over 50 develop symptoms, but only 10% of those affected need medical or surgical intervention. Medical intervention may be needed if the patient develops repeated urinary tract infection, or if the urethra becomes completely blocked.
