About 14 million American men suffer from BHP or an enlarged prostate – a condition that has a tremendous impact on an individual’s quality of life. BPH occurs in almost all men as they age, about half the men over 75 have some symptoms of BPH. BPH is not cancer, nor does it cause cancer. While you cannot prevent BPH or the urination problems it may cause, medical management can make the symptoms less debilitating.
BPH causes urinary problems such as:
- Trouble getting a urine stream started and completely stopped (dribbling).
- Often feeling like you need to urinate. This feeling may even wake you up at night.
- A weak urine stream.
- A sense that your bladder is not completely empty after you urinate
