According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 50 percent of men over the age of 60 and 90 percent of men over the age of 70 are living with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is the most common disorder of the prostate. This condition is caused by changing hormonal levels that increase the size of the prostate. The prostate may grow by cells multiplying around the urethra and squeezing it or by cells growing into the urethra and lower bladder. The male hormone testosterone is responsible for stimulating prostate growth. BPH is not typically associated with a cancerous prostate gland.
Patients suffering from BPH may experience the following symptoms:
- Blood in the urine
- Frequent urination
- Urine leakage
- Recurrent, sudden or urgent need to urinate
- Straining to begin urination
- Weak or interrupted urination
- Dribbling urinary stream
- Incomplete emptying of the bladder
- Acute inability to urinate (in severe cases)
