Avoiding Prostate Problems

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) or an enlarged prostate occurs when, in response to hormone, such as testosterone, the cells in the inner core of the prostate gland grow and form fibrous nodules.  These nodules put pressure on the urethrae causing pain and problems urinating.

If left untreated BPH can lead to prostatitis, and in severe cases, the bladder’s inability to empty completely can cause infection to spread in the bladder and even to the kidneys, possibly causing kidney damage.  BPH will affect an astonishing 50% of men during their lifetimes.
