Benign prostatic hypertrophy or BPH.
And all men over 50 should be aware of the number one most common prostate problem, which is an Enlarged Prostate, or Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy also known as BPH. (Benign meaning – not becoming cancerous - a benign tumour or growth.)
What is a Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or BPH? Its an enlargement of the prostate gland caused by a benign overgrowth. This benign, or nonfatal condition, is actually far more common in older men than prostate cancer, which should give some relief to older men when they know it.
Men should all be aware of the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, such as leaking and dribbling during urination, a weak urine stream, trouble getting started with urination, and even small amounts of blood in the urine.
Although Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy is more common than Prostate Cancer, men should be aware that the two can go hand in hand. It's not always the case, and many men with an Enlarged Prostate will never develop into cancer. But it's good to keep your eyes out for both, because they can have similar symptoms. For this reason its important to have these symptoms checked out by your doctor as soon as possible - before you "self diagnose" with the help of "Doctor Google" and think its BHP.
