Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) - symptoms and how to test
For males, an enlarged prostate gland that is not malignant is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. Depending on the severity of the condition, benign prostatic hyperplasia may cause a blockage in the urinary tract or benign prostatic obstruction. About half of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90% of men over 80 will develop benign prostatic hyperplasia. The tissue can be examined to confirm or refute the presence of prostate cancer by testing.
