The Prevention and Treatment of Prostate Enlargement (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia)

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-malignant enlargement of the prostate gland. The prostate is a small gland that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra in men. If the prostate enlarges, pressure may be put on the urethra, causes a variety of urinary symptoms, which include frequent urination during the day and at night, a weaker urine stream, as well as increased likelihood of dribbling. If the prostate enlarges too much, urination is difficult or impossible and the risk of urinary tract infection and kidney damage increases. A major contributing factor to BPH is the build of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate gland, which accelerates after age 35-40.
