In Canada, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), more commonly known as enlarged prostate, affects more than 2 million men over the age of 50 and up to 90 percent of men over 80.
Although BPH is not in itself a life-threatening condition, it can give rise to a number of inconvenient symptoms, which if severe enough, can affect men’s health and quality of life, in and out of the bedroom.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system, located inside the body between the bladder and urethra.
With age, testosterone levels decrease, stimulating prostate growth. By aged 40, the prostate gland begins to enlarge as benign tissue cells multiply, which leads to a narrowing of the urethra and subsequent bladder problems.
