Benign prostate enlargement, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition in which the prostate is enlarged, but not cancerous. This is the most common prostate problem in men over age 50.
If you have BPH, it doesn't necessarily need to be treated. Your doctor will order tests to see if BPH has affected your bladder or kidneys and to rule out cancer as a cause of your symptoms.
If your urinary tract has been damaged, is in danger of being damaged or your symptoms are severe enough to impact quality of life, you and your doctor will work together to develop a course of treatment that is right for you.
