Enlarged Prostate (BPH)
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, is a common, benign (not cancerous) condition in older men in which the prostate gland enlarges. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that produces semen, the fluid that transports sperm. Located below the bladder and surrounding the urethra (the tube carrying urine out of the body), an enlarged prostate can squeeze the urethra and cause difficulty with urination.
