Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also called an enlarged prostate, is one of the most common reasons why men over the age of 50 visits a urology specialist. Most men who develop BPH won’t develop complications from it, although they’re likely to have symptoms like frequent or urgent urination. It is possible for the enlarged prostate to cause the complete blockage of the urethra. When this happens, men are unable to urinate at all. This condition is called acute urinary retention, and it requires immediate medical attention.

Other possible complications of BPH include chronic, partial urinary retention, blood in the urine, and frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs). Some men may even develop bladder stones, bladder damage, or kidney stones. The proper treatment for BPH can help men control this condition and reduce the risk of complications.
