An Enlarged Prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia – BPH) is very common, as the Prostate naturally
increases in size once a man passes the age of 40. When the increase becomes excessive, however,
the Prostate presses on the urethra, narrowing it and causing patients to suffer from difficulty
urinating and the inability to empty their bladders fully. If left untreated, it can result in
urinary tract infections (UTIs) or even a sudden inability to urinate – a painful medical emergency.
While medical and surgical treatments for a serious case of BPH are available, in most cases,
treatment may not be necessary, but exams will be conducted annually to ensure no complications
develop from it.
