Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), often known as prostate gland enlargement, is a common disorder in senior men. An enlarged prostate gland may result in unpleasant urinary symptoms, such as obstructing urine flow out of the bladder. It can also create bladder, urinary tract, or kidney difficulties.
Common causes of BPH are:
- Urinary tract infection
- Narrowing of the urethra (urethral stricture
- Bladder neck scarring due to a previous surgery
- Bladder or kidney stones
- Cancer of the prostate or bladder
Medication, minimally invasive therapy, and surgery are all viable treatments for prostate gland enlargement. You and your doctor will consider your symptoms, the size of your prostate, any other health conditions you may have, and your preferences when deciding on the best option.
