Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the enlargement of the prostate gland. It is common in older men as the prostate continuously grows throughout life. Risk factors associated with prostate gland enlargement include aging, a family history of prostate enlargement, diabetes, and heart disease. Symptoms of BPH include a frequent or urgent need to urinate, difficulty starting urination, and inability to completely empty the bladder. BPH typically can be treated with tamsulosin or finasteride. If the condition is not controlled with medications, then minimal invasive or surgical therapy may be recommended.
