Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a term used for an enlarged prostate gland. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, the exit of urine from the bladder out of the body. As the prostate gets bigger, it may squeeze or partly block the urethra. This often causes problems with urinating. BPH occurs in almost all men as they age.
BPH is not cancer. BPH rarely causes symptoms before age 40, but more than half of men in their sixties and as many as 90% in their seventies and eighties have some symptoms of BPH. Approximately one third of men with enlarged prostates progressively worsen and require medical or surgical intervention. But one good point is that it is not cancer and there is no proof that it can lead to cancer.
The cause of prostate enlargement is unknown, but most studies agree that it’s linked to hormonal changes that occur as a man gets older.
BPH causes urinary problems such as:
- Hesitancy: Trouble getting a urine stream started and completely stopped (dribbling)
- Frequency: 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

In a small number of cases, BPH may cause the bladder to be blocked, making it impossible or extremely hard to urinate. This problem may cause backed-up urine (urinary retention), leading to bladder infections or stones, or kidney damage.
BPH does not cause prostate cancer and does not affect a man’s ability to father children. It does not cause erection problems.
